Please help me understand my errors. Do you mean twist on a drift and strip?
If wings were tied flatter would it help?
Dry flies with prominent wings tend to "helicopter" when cast on a light tippet. Twisting the leader into an unusable mess.
I'm betting that your foam wings will catch so much air that they'll be pretty much uncastable on any tippet.
For a dry fly, you might try a foam post with a parachute hackle. That's not going to "helicopter"
Other wise try tying your foam down like the shell back on a humpy
You could actually do both at once on a parachute humpy
