Tying 
Two Great Egg Imitations!

This Saturday (June 12 at 10 a.m. Eastern) on The Tying Bench: Two great egg imitations that will work well on stocked trout streams far and wide!
     We'll be tying the Enhanced Y2K (a souped-up version of the traditional Y2K) and the 3D Sucker Spawn (an easy-to-tie egg cluster imitation that's one of the most effective egg imitations I've ever used). The are outstanding flies for use wherever stocked trout are present!
     I look forward to seeing you Saturday morning!
     Here's what you'll need to tie these two great flies:

Enhanced Y2K materials:


HOOK: Size 12 regular (preferred) or 1XL nymph hook Smaller hooks can also be used.
BEAD: Tungsten, brass, or glass bead suitable for the hook size you are using. Gold or red are ideal. Orange or pink work fine too!
THREAD:  3/0 or 210 denier RED thread (or strong 6/0 thread). Use 6/0 for smaller hooks.
BODY MATERIAL #1: Yellow Y2K yarn. There are many different types of yarn offered as Y2K yarn; most any of them will work fine.
BODY MATERIAL #2: Orange Y2K yarn.
DUBBED COLLAR: Red dubbing.

3D Sucker Spawn materials:


HOOK: Size 12 regular or 1XL nymph hook
THREAD: 3/0 or 210 denier RED thread (or strong 6/0 thread)
BODY: Two to four plies from a piece of multi-ply pink yarn. Baby blanket yarn is ideal.

Other materials and tools you might want to have: 


Dubbing wax (not essential, but makes it easier to apply the red dubbing to thread when tying the enhanced Y2K)

Please note that Tie It & Try It kits are available for each of these great flies! Find them in our webstore or at your local fly shop!
