We don’t always fish with eggs… But when we do, we fish with Otter’s Soft Milking Egg.
When the pattern and materials are designed by a guy who got his nickname because he’s always in the water and usually catching fish, you know it’s going to be good. But Walt Mueller, Jr., AKA “The Otter” didn’t just make a good egg, he made the best egg in the business. His original “Soft Milking Egg”® was first developed for steelhead in the Great Lakes area, but are now making monster fish go mad for “milk” worldwide.
MFC is proud to distribute The Otter’s Soft Milking Egg and the materials to make it.
What makes The Otter’s pattern so deadly? Well, these are soft and milking. Yep. Other egg patterns are made of epoxy or hard plastic, so they don’t exhibit the milking characteristic of real fish eggs. Milking is when a real egg splits open and the interior contents of the egg exudes as a whitish colored liquid into the current, very similar to the sperm from a male fish. Chewy and straight-up gourmet.
Seven different sizes of The Otter’s “Soft Milking Egg”® fly patterns are available, from the small 2 x 2 mm double row “Soft Sucker Spawn”© OS-3 flies on tiny #18 hooks, to the 3 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm (NEW) and 10 mm flies with single eggs on #10 thru #14 hooks; plus the larger 3 x 6 mm clusters and multiple clusters on #8 up to #2/0 hooks, now in 17 different translucent and opaque egg colors!
