If you're going to be a real purist then you shouldn't eat eggs either!! But if you eat eggs you shouldn't deny the trout theirs.... even if it is a fake! ;-)

There is really no "right" or "wrong" to any of these questions about eggs, San Juan worms, or any other less than traditional "fly" pattern. If the state you are fishing in allows that type of "fly" and it meets all the criteria to be a legal offering than it is of no consequence what some other guy's opinion is does it? If it bothers you that someone might find your use of an egg fly as unethical (or add whatever negative comment you choose) then just don't use that type of "fly".

Personally I would never use an egg fly on the trout waters that I fish but I wouldn't look down my nose at someone who did. However when it comes to steelhead fishing I use not only egg flies like Glo-bugs, Blood Dots, Krystal Meth, but will really go over to the Dark side and peg an egg.
