Default Tying Salmon Egg

I have the hooks, colored yarn and correct thread.....but, I can't figure out how to tie the yarn to look like a round ball (egg).
Any egg tyers out there?

Eggs are easy....I tie mine in various sizes; the clearer the water the smaller the size. You can tie them in single eggs or try the pattern called sucker spawn. For the single egg take about a 1 inch long piece of egg yarn about the diameter of a pencil. Take 4 wraps around the hook shank, then wrap in front and back a few turns. I usually wrap thread around the base like you would for a parachute post. Tie off, then pull straight up on the yarn and cut it. The closer you cut to the hook the smaller the "egg" will be. To put a blood spot on your egg, add a contrasting color of yarn when you do the initial tie.

Question Re: Tying Otters Soft Milk Eggs

Does anyone have a pattern for tying an Otters Soft Milk Egg fly with egg veil? I assume that you would pull the egg on after laying a thread base in the same color and would tie some egg veil right in front of the egg, but I'm wondering how to keep the egg from moving down the hook since it's such a soft material.

I should have added that after laying a thread base, I assume you'd cover the thread base with some sort of glue, then slide the Otters Soft Milk Egg over it. I'm guessing you'd then wrap a little egg veil on your thread and wrap it around a few turns in front of the egg. Would you then thread wrap the end of the egg veil on the other side of the egg so that it wouldn't clump up on the front of the fly when it got wet?
