Egghead – Light


“I did the Egg Head for Fly Tyer magazine in 1981, but it was part of a series that I came up with in the late 70′s inspired by a fly that Bill Schaadt gave me while I was still in high school. His was a ball of chenille with mixed red and orange hackle ahead. He called it his gob of bait fly. I would think his later Egg Nymph patterns evolved from this. I put the egg ahead of the hackle to make it more visible…at least to me.”
