    There's Better Yarn Out There - 2/1/2015

    When I started tying, I bought this yarn because I thought tying egg patterns would be an easy way to start, and I knew Orvis sold quality products. My results were less than desirable. I just did not get the "fluff" I wanted. I pretty much gave up on them, until I saw a pattern called "Eggs Over Easy". I tried the pattern using this yarn, and it works very well. Since then, I bought yarn from another supplier, and I am very pleased with the "fluff" I get from that product. It is thicker, and I think that it why I get the results I want. My advice to Orvis, re-do this product and make it "fluffier!" You guys are still my "go-to" for products, and I am still a faithful customer.

    Whats better than spinning a yarn? Having someone spin it for you with the quality that you would make for yourself.

    This product comes well packaged and a leaflet on how to tie an egg fly is provided in the packet. You receive a good amount of the yarn and provides value for money.

    Egg fly yarn names/colors - 11/25/2011

    Since I am new to fly fishing, can you somwhere put a picture of the actual yarn color next to the yarn colors name? You do this nicely with fly thread, but not with yarn?

    Great Product - 8/31/2011

    This yarn is fantastic and allows you to tie tons of eggs. Great value! I made over 60 glow bugs with two packs of yarn and still have some left over. Fantastic value for the amount of flies you can tie.
