Tying the Blood dot.

Lately I have received a decent amount of questions regarding this egg pattern from a a few folks that read my blog and the forums I post on.This fly was designed by a fellow named Jeff Blood and he is the mastermind behind the River roe products company. The blood dot is one of the most effective egg patterns I have ever used. It seems to out fish a normal GLO-BUG tied in the same color every time. Not to mention it's super simple to tie.So here is my first attempt at doing a fly tying tutorial.



MATERIALS NEEDED:

HOOK: TIEMCO 2457
THREAD: 210 DENIER HOT ORANGE OR RED
EGG BODY: EGG COLORED GLO-BUG YARN
YOLK: STEELHEAD ORANGE




I'm little computer challenged and I'm not quite sure how I can place text above each picture on this forum but if you go to my blog you can view the instructions a little better over there. www.wildfly365.blogspot.com and if anybody knows how to place text above the pictures please enlighten me. Thanks

Jeff was here 2 years ago and he tied the orange in as a loop also, did you change it for ease of tying or for another reason ??

Sandfly,

No, this is how I saw it tied by Jeff on a tying video I found online.
I believe it's on the riseform website.

Nice tutorial. The only egg pattern you need. A real Killer. I loop the orange as well. When your done with this fly, Its important to to push the material on both ends together with your fingers to give egg a more round appearance.

One thing I forgot to add in the tutorial is you do NOT use a whole piece of egg yarn.

Simply split the stand in half then half it again. About a 1/4 of the strand is good for eggs tied on 16-18 hooks. These are the sizes I use for trout.

There was an online article on the Flyfisherman magazine website a while back on steelhead flies, and Ted Fauceglia tied his version of Jeff Blood's blood dot.

It was similar to zero's version, but only had one loop on either side. The key to the pattern was pushing the two loops together on the hook shank to "surround" the yolk post.

It's a great egg pattern - easy to tie in tiny sizes, and doesn't interfere with the hook gap.

Fredrick,

Would you say Jeff uses less than a 1/4 stand of egg yarn? Or does he use more?? I tie mine with a 1/4 of the yarn.

This how mine look when wet.

Easy. Don't attach the photos, they all goto the bottom. Use the inline photos by linking to the URL with the little icon of the face up there in the menu, not the one that says manager, but the other one. Use the photo URL from the one you already bloggerated.

So, you type some text like this. After this text, I'll hit the image link button up there...

Now an awesome picture of a superrad chick shows up. So I can type some more stuff abotu the next picture, and I copy the URL for the photo from picasa or your blog or whatever.

And I hit the image button and...

Moar hot chick.

FInally, we'll do it again because Sasha should come in a trilogy of awesome and we'll end with this example:
