Default Eggs

the wife and I were in Cabela's over the hollidays and I bought some eggs on sale, they just slide on the hook. My ? is, is zap-a-gap or crazzy glue better? Or does it matter? any other glues better then one of those?
Thanks

I have exactly the same question. I have found out (as a "re-born again" fly-tier) that the hook shank should first be thread-wound to provide an attachable surface - which I'm sure you knew already - and the glue put onto that. I've had recommendations for both Zap-A-Gap and Crazy Glue, so it probably doesn't matter.

Be interested in any feedback by more-experienced tiers.

Hi to all,

If your eggs don't have a thread core through the center you need to put a thread base down first. It only needs to be as wide as the egg or slightly smaller. After you wrap the base slide the egg over the hook bend and then apply some Zap-A-Gap to the thread. Now slide the egg over the thread/glue and let it set.

I am not sure what eggs you have and a thinner glue may be better. Any of the water proof Super glues will work.

Here is a quick egg to make from Feather-Craft using REEL Eggs.

Reel Eggs

REEL EGGS REEL EGGS are the latest ULTRA-REALISTIC "soft egg" component. Yarn-cord strung through them eliminates the need to build up a thread base on the hook-shank for the glue to adhere to. Trim the yarn "flush" with the egg, pass the hook point through the yarn core, apply one drop of Zap-A-Gap super-glue to hook-shank, then slide into final position. Done. COLORS: (1)Dead-Egg (Amber), (3)Fl-Flame, (5)Golden-Yellow, (6)Hot-Pink, (7)Blue-Steelie, (8)Orange-Roe, (9)Oregon-Cheese, (10)Red, (11)Rotten-Egg (Dk-Amber), (13)Yellow-Chartreuse, (17)Baby-Pink, (18)Clear/Fl-Hot-Pink, (19)Clear/Orange-Core, (20)Clear/Red-Core. 8mm, single eggs. (12-PAK)

Hi Frank,

Interested to hear about the REEL eggs (now that I just bought a bunch of Otter's Soft Milk Eggs ). I guess the idea with the yarn run through the REEL eggs is that it provides a "purchase" hold for the glue? Hard to believe it would hold all that well since, unlike with Otter's and other eggs, it doesn't have a firmly-attached thread base to be glued to.
