Default Foam swap

Okay, who is in. Any fly. You choose. You must use foam in at least some of the construction of the fly.

I will be tying an extended body salmon fly.

I'm dying. I would really like to get in on this one but my tying box is in "temporary" storage. It's been a long winter. Sorry.

Well, since we are the only two that seem interested, this might not go. Let's see if more jump in.

Default Re: Foam swap

I'm in. Should it be a trout fly though? I've just developed a cool looking bass/redfish fly I'm calling The Alien. I'll know how it works on reds in a few days.

I could easily tie up some trouty stuff too though. My wife is a teacher and she has been picking up quite a nice selection of foam for me in her painfully unreimbursed trips to the craft stores.

(can I get some props for using two freshly invented words? "trouty" and "unreimbursed") (best new one I've developed is "irrational franticity", used to describe those who are constantly freaking out without any real need to be)

Cliff, if the swap doesn't get too large, I'd like to get in. By the way, Richard Komar has an article in FAOL this week on the Alien. Who's first? Or are you working together on the fly? Just wondering. Back to the swap, if you get a half dozen or so would work well.

Default Re: Foam swap

Not the same at all. Mine is a streamer/diver pattern with one of rainy's popper heads up front. Its mostly chartreuse and when I drew the eyes on the head they were inadverterntly elliptical. It reminded me of the drawings you see of aliens with the upside-down pear shaped head and the huge black eyes. Thats why I chose the name for mine.

I just remembered that Richard Komar also lives in the D/FW metromess, so I could see how you might think collaboration was involved. I don't believe I've ever even met the guy, although its very possible he came into Bass Amateur while I was working there.
