Default 2014 Foam Fly Swap Photos

Here are the photos and recipes for the foam fly swap. This is a work in progress as I sent off the packages and forgot to take notes so will need help in identifying who tied what and need some additional recipes so please send those to me. Thanks!

Thread: Black 70 Denier UTC
Body: Black 2 mm closed cell foam
Wing: Deer hair
Indicator: Pink egg yarn


3. Gartside Gurgler by Horsehead
Click the image to open in full size.
Recipe:
Hook: Saltwater TMC 811S, Mustad 34007 or Daiichi 2456, size 2/0-4
Thread: 140-denier UTC or 3/0 Danville monocord, white
Tail: Bucktail and/or marabou plumes, white overlaid with 5-6 strands of pearl Krystal flash
Body: 1/8" white closed cell foam 1/2-5/8" wide
Rib: Saddle hackle, white or grizzly
Back: Body material pulled back over top


4. Foam and CDC Little Black Stonefly by Hokiehunter07
Click the image to open in full size.
Receipe:
- Hook: size 14 light wire hopper hook / curved nymph
- Body: Black razor foam cut into 1/16" strips
- Tail: Black goose biots
- Legs: Black Medium rubber legs
- Wing: Dun CDC (or poly yarn or equivalent material)
- Thread: Black 6/0

Steps:
- Wrap thread from behind eye to hook bend.
- Tie in biots so they face away from each other.
- Tie in foam strip just in front of biots while carefully adding tension to the foam (tension make the foam thinner).
- Wrap foam up body slowly releasing tension on the foam to make nice taper
- Quit wrapping foam at about 1/2way - 2/3rds point on the hook.
- Cut a 1/2 lg piece of foam from your strip.
- Tie it on top of the hook from the end of the body to just behind the eye
- Leave tag of 1/2 piece hanging over eye
- Cut 1" lg piece of foam from the foam strip.
- Tie one inch piece of foam in from behind the eye back to the start of the body
- Wrap the 1" strip 2 wraps towards the eye and then back to the tie in spot.
- Cut excess foam from 1" strip.
- Tie in approximately 4-5 small CDC feathers (or poly yarn)on top of tie in point.
- Trim to about 1 body length
- Tie in rubber legs on either side at the tie in point.
- Fold the 1/2" strip extending past the eye back over the thorax and tie off at tie in point
- Trim 1/2" strip about 1/8-1/4" up from the tie off point.
- Whip finish or half hitch at tie in point.

Even though this fly is made of foam and CDC it will sink without floatant and drying. Replace CDC with a foam cylinder for added visibility. Fish on a dead drift or skirting with a high stick in calmer water.

I've had great luck with brookies with this fly. It's a lot easier to tie than it sounds and I knocked all these in a little over an hour. Look for the lightest wire hook you can find for best results.

5. Tie in hair wing so front extends out to end of mono extension. Tips should extend back to end of hook
6. Separate hair wing and bring foam up and over towards hook eye
7. Secure foam with thread wraps behind hook eye - whip finish
8. Trim foam to desired head shape
