Cut rhubarb into 1/2 inch pieces. Mix sugar, tapioca, and salt. Toss with rhubarb and strawberries. Stir in egg yolk.
Heat oven to 425°F.
Prepare pastry. Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. Pour fruit mixture into bottom pie crust. Cover with top crust that has 3 or 4 slits cut in center. Seal and flute the edges. Cover edge with 3-inch strips of foil to prevent excessive browning Place pie on a cookie sheet with a lip, covered with foil, to keep your oven clean.
Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil around the edge of the crust. Bake until the crust is golden brown, and the juice begins to bubble through slits (about 10- 15 minutes more).
