Re: Booby Fly Won't Float
You may try cutting a small strip of foam sheet and wrapping it up the shank. then use a wrap of chenille over that or just some dubbing. I've done that for a number of I floatation flies and it works if a bulky body isn't a bad thing. Deer hair tied in like a tail and then pulled back up towards the eye and wrapped in segments so you don't crush it all down...nice floating center for the same chenille or dubing over wrap.
