Re: Terrestrial Swap #1, Spring 2012
My foam hoppers will be in the mail Wednesday AM. Not as good looking as tbblom's, but something you won't mind risking running it next to bank snags. And I know they catch fish.
Sorry, no photo- I'm still having issues with Photobucket, but here's the reciepe:
FOAM HOPPER RECIEPE
Hook- Size 8 TMC 200R/DaiRiki #270, barb pinched
Thread- Gray 3/0 waxed monocord
Abdomen- Yellow craft foam
Head- Brown craft foam
Head tag- Orange craft foam
Tail- Red saddle hackle fibers
Legs- Medium orange rubber*
*For this swap, I left the legs long so you can tie in
a “knee knot” or trim them shorter as you wish.
The postal worker guy told me they'll be there Saturday.
