I'm pretty new to tying, but I saw a guy that ties commercially pull the yarn thru a plastic straw. I haven't heard anybody mention that method. Tell you this - it was quick and round.

you can buy the McFly Foam with the straws...........3 sizes in the package.........

McFly Foam is a way quicker tie than glo-bug material...and with less waste

basically fill the tube, pull out desired length of material, figure 8, whip finish, clip the top of the egg to match the bottom of the egg and you are done

I don't even use traditional egg patterns much. I have had greater success with a scrambled egg variation. I normally tie them on a #16 or #18 nymph hook with glo bug yarn. They basically look like mini sucker spawns. I use a lot of off white, light pink, and salmon colors. I put a little bit of orange for a blood dot. Give it a shot. They are much easier to tie and use way less material.
