Best egg tying tip I can pass along is to run your egg yarn thru an empty bic type pen body. I find it really helps to control the placement of material on the hook. Of course, not everyone has my fat fingers.

That method also ensures little to no waste of material!

Yup! I thought I was the only one cheap, I mean. thrifty enough to not want to waste egg yarn.

Bought a couple boxes of Tiemco 2488H.
I found that I'm loosing too many fish during the fight with that hook. " H " is the heavy version of the 2488 so the problem isn't with straightening.
So, now I'm back to the 2457

Dano sorry to hear your having problems with that hook, but like anything else its luck! Its the only hook I used for eggs and nymphs for steelhead , lakers, and kings! The H was for the straight eye. the old 2488 had a turned down eye! the 2488 always are 3x wide, 2x heavy and 2x short! good luck gents!

Pegged beads are very common, and have been around a while. They are the method of choice for center pinners, and are actually mandatory in certain places in alaska, since they significantly reduce mortality. Legality is cloudy in PA. Use at your own risk. They are legal within 2 inches of the hook in NY, and are absolutely deadly.

"H" is for heavy wire not "straight eye"
2488 has a fine wire
2488H has 2x heavy wire
2488 and 2488H are both 3x wide, 2x short, straight eye
2487 2x wide, 2x short, fine wire, down eye
2457 2x wide, 2x short, 2x heavy wire, down eye

Good luck, Tony
