I would fish them like single egg sperm flies. I mean, the sperm part of the pattern doesn't represent something that goes faster in the water (I'm trying hard to avoid puns). So, that means, for me, a standard dead drift with a slow swing at the end of the drift. Also, I'm assuming anadromous fish.

Hey Clint, I just checked your blog and it's still the same. Are you going to put some pics of the finished boat? How are things going? Bob

My question is how are they normally fished? (swung, nymphed, dead drifted, high sticked?) I would like to start fishing them more but not shure how to fish them the way they were intended to be fished. Any advice would be appreciated.

Clint
They can be fished any of those ways. Wouldn't expect to catch fish on a swung egg necessarily but it does work at times. And I believe that particular fly is meant to be swung (swanged? swinged?) as it is tied on a steelhead hook and is not weighted.

No comments about swinging sperm or eggs or whatever.
