I would say about 10 years ago a good friend and fellow fly-fishing guide at the time Fred Stueber showed me my first clown egg. He also showed me a popular way how to tie an egg, popular that is out west, and the rag style clown has been a staple in my fly box since.
Just finished a how to tie video for the Hawkins site and thought I would also post it here, as it is one of my KISS Flies (Keep It Simple Stupid).
Just uploaded a new Hawkins Steelhead Video Highlight. Had the chance to capture hours of footage and here is a short 4 min clip from the banner 2011 fall. Hope to create another video during the next few weeks. Hope you enjoy!
