Working on a couple of milking roe ball prototypes for ChumDog.

The marabou versions have nice "action." I think they will get bit.

An egg veil is any sort of fine, white material used to imitate leftover skein on an egg pattern.





There are a variety of different ways to do it, but this is one product that is commonly used.

http://www.caddisflyshop.com/egg-veil.html

Since I was never able to find this particular product at my local fly shops, I have tried some different things. One that I have had similar success with is White Glo Bug yarn. I pull it apart until it is fine enough to lightly cover the egg pattern.

Looks like a finer version of Ice dubbing, which I like to use in my bait drift rig leaders. Nice stuff. Thanks.

No problem. Let us know if you find a good way to incorporate it in your yarn balls.

I always called that an egg hymen.

Actually, I just made that up.

Dingle berry yarn balls named the "pacifier" by sir stamly.



I cant decide if they look more like butts, balls, or boobs.

I think it depends more on your sexual perspective. To each their own...

Well I have returned to the land of snow and ice after a few weeks on the beach. More on that a bit later.

Thanks to those that sent stories and photos about yarn ball fishing success while I was out. Very cool indeed.

Seeing as how winter is far from over and I am back in need of entertainment, the yarn ball factory is once again open for business. I still have quite a few of the usual flavors on-hand and will be cranking more out daily. Custom orders welcome also.
