McFly Foam makes a superior egg pattern fly. It is easier to work with than traditional yarn. It ties a tighter, more round egg. I won't use yarn anymore for egg patters. McFly Foam is the best.

McFly Foam was referred to me, and it is incredibly easy to use, especially with the Glo Bug Dispenser. It makes some awesome-looking eggs, and it comes in a variety of awesome colors... every color I could need to catch fish. It does get caught on everything... any cracks in your fingers and you're trailing little bits of it everywhere.

About Me:

I tie a lot of eggs for steelhead and have tried many materials - McFlyFoam is heads and shoulders above the rest. I am no expert at tying flies, but I can make 30+ good flies an hour with this stuff and a straw. I only wish they had a true red - "bright red" is too orange for me. I have to use other stuff to get a good red.

By far the best for tying egg patterns of any type. The yarn is alot tighter than glo bug yarn making perfect eggs a norm not a rare occurence. The colors are covered in almost any direction and I especially like this for tying small size 16 to 20 patterns.

In the past, I've found it hard to tie good egg patterns. But McFly Foam is by far the best material because it is stretchy - when cut clean, it makes a nice tight ball!

About Me:

If you want to tie glo bugs, and don't have days to figure out how to do it with glo bug yarn, use Mcfly foam. Its spongy, which allows you to get your thread wraps close and tight to the hook, which is key to making glo bugs. I still scrap about every 5th glo bug tied with yarn but with Mcfly foam they seem to come out right every time. The down side is that you go through the material much faster than yarn, so it gets spendy quick. Also, glo bug yarn comes in a lot more variety of colors, which is nice. I think Mcfly foam comes in 12 or so colors but I only find one of them useful for steelhead egg paterns.
Pros: Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Durability and colors
Best Uses: Fly Fishing, Freshwater Fishing
