I agree that the McFly Foam is much easier to use. I've been tying with the Wapsi stuff for a while and I just got my first pack of McFly Foam. I'm totally sold on the stuff now. I Think I'm going to have tie 30,000,000,000 eggs to use up all the Wapsi stuff.

How the heck do you guys tie a sucker spawn? I don't have fat fingers and I still can't get the yarn to cooperate. I'm temped to tie them on a streamer hook so I have room to make the wraps.

I've been using angora yarn on a scud hook to tie my sucker spawn. Just make a loop, secure with a few wraps, and work your way down the hook.

+1 for Angora yarn SS. Micro glo bug yarn is my other choice. No doubt if you can tie a glo bug, you easily tie a SS or Crystal Spawn, that video tutorial should help. Sometimes I'll lash 2 or 3 strands of crystal flash to the hook before tying in the yarn.

Greg, use a tooth pick or part of your bodkin. Work from back to front, and wrap the yarn over top of the bodkin to get your loop. Put 2 wraps over it, and then advance thread... repeat. I'll have to come by and show you.
