Hi pszy22,

Here is a photo showing how to use a egg yarn tool.

I can't understand how it helps save yarn. I cut 3 or 4 pieces of yarn about 5/8' to 3/4" long and tie them on at one time. There must be something I am missing. How do you use your tool

Frank

Edit: I just studied the picture and I see that several pieces of yarn are in the holder so you only make one cut. Cool, I see that might be worth while. I see this tool comes with a threader.

I meant to add that if you want to add some sparkle to your eggs, the best material I found is sparkle organza fibers. These fibers are very fine and strong, have have just the right amount of sparkle. (This stuff is also great for tying spent wings, adding flash to streamers, etc)

You can buy it at a fabric store, or if you're lazy, drop me a PM and for a couple of bucks I can send you a life time supply.

Have fun.

Hi pszy22,

Thanks for the links. I didn't see anything that might make me change the way I tie an egg.

Frank

Flyfisher as you tye more egg patterns you will find that you can use shorter lengths of yarn to tye your eggs. When you clip the yarn when you finish tying, save the clippings; the stuff dubs pretty nicely when you pull it apart. I mix my clippings and use it for dubbing on small eggs, it makes for a great Clown Egg. The more you tye the quicker and better you will be.
