Hi fellas long time no see.

fuzzback After experimenting with both beads and Otter Eggs I've pretty much gone back to glow bugs, as they seem to me to be both simpler and more durable. And now they're easier to tie, too, with this straw method. The size straw you get at Panera's works great for trout-size eggs.

Thanks, that is kind of what I thought. I use colored cats eye glass beads so coloring them is not necessary, but the aqua seal is a good tip for durability.

FSHHNTR I've got to throw in my two cents. I do prefer otter eggs just because the fish hang on to them a little longer. I have some from MFC and tie mine the same way and they last plenty long. The beads are great but I've just never gotten used to them but if you really want to play with them a little fingernail polish and some aquaseal make them even more juicy. (old AK guide trick)

Egg patterns of all sorts are in essence matching the hatch or just an attractor pattern. When I was guiding in Alaska the river I was on literally did not have any bug hatch's but instead the trout, char, pike and grayling all ate some or all of the following. Lemmings, sculpins, smolt, dead salmon flesh and lots of eggs. As with all matching the hatch ideas if you didn't have the right size and color of egg pattern you didn't catch as many fish or to that point your deer hair mouse, woolhead sculpin, clouser etc. So each to his own if you don't like em don't use em. It's like saying rubber legs are bad.
