Here’s a killer winter egg pattern that is a huge favorite of both well-known guide George Daniel and Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions because it is so effective. Like many such flies, the Eggstasy Egg can be tied in a variety of colors, color combinations, weights, and sizes, giving anglers plenty of options to match to conditions and fish preferences. In this great video, Tim shows you how easy it is to ties this pattern with Eggstasy, which has the benefit of a central fiber that’s easy to wrap on even a tiny hook.
