About: This pattern is an egg/nymph hybrid that incorporates a unique body composition with very dynamic materials that not only cause the fly to have an almost indistinguishable entry into the water, but also provides great movement. The first version of this pattern I tied was intended to be fished similarly to an egg to suspended or cruising Carp, but as it evolved, I tweaked it to be fished to the shallow tailers on our local reservoirs. You could even upscale it to throw at Redfish or Bonefish on the flats!
Hook: Gamakatsu SL45, size 6
Eyes: Medium beadchain, black
Thread: 8/0 UNI, brown (dense thread such as UNI makes tying in the body a ton easier and creates a much neater finished product)
Tail: Red fox body, small clump of pearl ice dub, two nymph sized sili legs (speckled brown)
Body: Alternating clumps of SowScud dubbing tied horizontally figure eight style, (light sow bug and dark grey pictured)
Wing: Two sili legs on either side of the fly, clump of red fox
