Brad....one suggestion.....I would consider cutting some grooved slits in the foam....it makes it alot easier to get the fly in and out of the foam...and won't tear it up after repeated use. Cut a good slit in the foam...then come back and cut a v groove (maybe a 1/16th ")at the top of the slit so it guides the hook into the slit.....quick in ....quick out.....last thing you want is to be screwing around trying to get the hook to stay put in the foam....and all the while the epoxy is dripping off the fly!

Otherwise....looks great! :D

I like it :) That makes loads of sense. Tomorrow as I'm trapped inside or at least the other side of the hill from any water I'll do that. Thanks.

You all know me well enough by now that I would try to make something or re-engineer it. That a big part of my fun :D
