Foam Flies

The past few nights have me sitting at the vise learning how to tie terrestrials with 2mm foam. It's been a blast.

There have been a few key points I have learned during this process. Cute girls shop at craft stores. 3M Spray Mount should be used in a well-ventilated area. Good razor blades are crucial. Always have a beer.

  1. Looking good, those will float!! A trick on the knotted legs is to use super glue, tie in your legs and strecth the leg a little and dap a spot of super glue where you want the knot, hold a second to let glue dry and then it will kink at that spot.


  2. Thanks for the tip. I need to pick up some better material for the legs. Looks like Montana Fly Company has the best.
