The Egg Sucking Popsicle Tied by Casey

The Egg Sucking Popsicle is a must have for any steelheader’s fly box! It has everything we look for in a steelhead fly; a good profile, colour contrast, movement, enticing flash and a hot pink egg that doesn’t hurt!

This isn't a difficult pattern to replicate. You can tie quickly to fill some gaps in the fly box the night before a day on the water.  This pattern is most effectively fished swung on a sink-tip with a fairly short leader, roughly 4 feet. We will typically run 15lb Seagaur Blue Label Fluorocarbon as my tippet.

Fly Recipe

Tying Instruction

  • Put your hook in the vice and tie in your thread, lying down a base to cover the front 1/3 of the hook shank.
  • Tie in your black marabou by the tip and palmer it in, making 4 wraps.
  • Tie in the purple marabou by the tip and palmer it in making 3 wraps.
  • Tie in the flashabou and crystal flash over the top of the fly, creating a wing and then trimming flush with the tips of the marabou.
  • Tie in the Schlappen by the tip and make 3 wraps.
  • Tie in the Pink Chenille and wrap it to cover up the tie-off point of the Schlappen and create an egg at the front of the fly.
  • Create a thread head, whip finish and glue with your favorite head cement or UV resin.

The size of this pattern is not determined by the size of the hook. The length of the marabou you use will determine the length of the finished fly. If you want a smaller fly, use standard marabou and not the “spey” size.
