Default Re: Foam ideas?

I've had some fun cutting long acute triangles of foam, tying the small end in at the rear of the hook, then wrapping the foam around the hook. It makes a segmented body that can be very defined with a loose wrap or smoothed out with a tight wrap. I use this for stimulator bodies and heads. You can accentuate the segments with fine hackle, peacock herl or wire. You can tie legs to the hook shank and bring them out between the foam wraps anywhere you want.
