Fly Pattern: The Clown Egg

One of the staple fly patterns for us at Hawkins Outfitters for years has been the Clown Egg. Once you blend different colors of Glo Bug yarn, you can achieve colors and transparencies that solid colors can not achieve. Watch the video below on how to tie the Clown Egg. Jon Ray demonstrates the "Lemon Parade" blend. This color combo is effective all year, but really shines early in the fall and spring, when "real" eggs are tumbling along the bottom. Also purchase "Clown Eggs" at Orvis.com.
