Juicy Foam Flies - Bass And Panfish


Recommended Posts

These are simple - if using a cutter but you can cut this shape out with scissors.

Size 10 hook

2 lengths of foam about 1/2" wide

One length of foam needs to be about 1/2" short than the other. Match up the butt ends (longer piece of foam on the bottom) and secure bottom at about the barb with 6 wraps of thread. Wind thread around the shank towards the eye - stop about 1/8" from eye. Pull the longer length of foam over the top of the shorter piece and secure with several wraps of thread. Tie in a foam indicator if needed. Throw some legs on and secure with thread. Clip thread and secure body with glue.

Hey, do those hoppers with the eye thru the foam cause a big - bloolloooop - sound when pulled out of a drift to re-cast ?

I saw those on your eBay listings from off the blog.

Good looking bugs... no doubt. :psychotic:

Fun to tie and fish and a great way to get anyone (little kids and big kids and grown kids) into fly fishing!

Just once I wish a trout would wink at me!


I'm the guy wearing the same Simms longbilled hat for 10 years now.
