I’ve been tying – or trying to tie – egg sucking leeches. All that is, is an egg tied to the front of a hook followed by a woolly bugger. And both patterns are simple when tied separately, but for the life of me, I’m spending three times as long tying the pattern. After watching a u-tube video, I learned an easier way of tying an egg sucking leech.
You can buy pom-poms of all different sizes and colors at most craft stores, like Michaels. For pennies, you can get an entire bag of different colored pom-poms that can be slid onto a hook after tying a base of thread and covering it with glue. Simple. Then just tie a wooly bugger behind the egg. And, it’s cheaper than buying material for eggs.
