seen this pattern on http://www.questoutdoors.net/skills/fty ... erns/eggs/
I was trying to make scrambled eggs but the yarn was tending to spin around the hook when I tried to "scramble" them at the end.. I opted for the blood dot spawn instead but I made my 1st one without a blood dot. just used oregon cheese and yellow thread and it basically ends up looking just like a cluster of 4 eggs when you are done. give um a try if ya want.
you can use any color and even add the blood dot to it if ya want.

i hate making glo bugs I just suck at em. If I want to make a scrambled egg i use a few different colored peices of yarn and tie a sucker spawn. with it. My favorite is blue pink and yellow. just cut a strip of each, tie them in, and make the ss

ya I made a few scrambled in pink/flame last year. I was given a tip to try a oregon cheese scrambled egg with no flame in it at all. just oregon cheese colored yarn. thats why I made this all one color like that. oh well never know until you try um. I am not too bad at glo eggs. you just need some really sharp scissors and they come out pretty good.

did you look at the way loren williams makes his scrambled eggs? that is the only way it works for me. just google scrambled egg fly pattern and you should be able to find it. They take more time than most egg patterns because you have the wrap the shank of the hook several times with thread to create a ruff surface so the yarn won't spin. It also takes a lot of thread wraps to lash the yarn to your initial thread base. scrambled egg patterns are usually tied densely and I like to use them in stained waters tied with bright colored yarn. In very "green" almost muddy water a couple of weeks ago half flame, half bright yellow (size 10) worked well for me. A burt damn salmon killer is an all cream version for clear water and add a little orange for colored waters. lately, sparsely tied glo bugs have been working for me. Just one piece of a regular sized yarn with a brighter piece of micro yarn on top to make a dot when cut. for size, I tie them small enough to pass for a single egg on a size 12 and larger on a 10.
