Looking for something easy to cover my foam flies with. Bass chew'em up so fast. If anybody knows of something that will make them float better and last longer I sure would appreciate it. THX, joe

Sally Hanson Hard as Nails is easy and lasts a while.
Flex Coat is not as easy, though flexible and lasts a very
long while for me.

For "Big Fish Johnson" sized fish neither will last to long:

Zaloos... Zaloos...Don that river was "on fire" back then. Remember how you could regularly see smallmouth busting minnows? Back to the foam flies... there's got to be some kind of sealer or something that you could just dip your flies in and be done. I keep meaning to ask foam Guru Anthony Hipps about it but I forget.

Anthony Hipps uses Delta Ceramcoat varnish and I think that what Kim used on his poppers. I have been using it on foam poppers. Available at Hobby Lobby, Micheal's, etc.
