Another pattern copied from Youtube.. I am really starting to like working with foam.



A little heavy on the deer hair, but she will float !

Awesome tie. I was wanting to try a few foam flies also just haven't seen the stuff so far in my travels. Alternative might work but the fly shop stuff would require less trimming and shaping I would guess.

Thanks guys, I put together a nice little fleet of these.  Now it's time for a few different color patterns to go with them.
