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
Roger,

I will go back to the drawing board and see what I come up with.

Thanks for the feedback. Appreciate it.
