Sucker Spawn

Sucker Spawn is another great easy egg pattern, designed to simulate a clump of sucker eggs. The key in tying this pattern is to tie in "loops" of the yarn down one side of the hook shank and back up the other side. Variations besides color of the yarn and thread can also include a tail of krystal flash or tying with diamond braid. See Steelheading101 for excellent tying instructions of this simple pattern!

Pattern (as tied)
Hook - Typically a short shank curved caddis, circle or egg type
Thread - 6/0
Body - Regular Old Yarn!
