Im new to fly fishing but have you thought of buying regular foam an then just getting a can of adhesive spray.
You could use the adhesive according to the direction. Some of that spray is some wicked stuff. My dad an I use it to glue laminate down on table tops.
So Im sure it would hold some foam to the side of a boat.
Just a thought

You could always try double sided tape if you cannot locate any. Sorry, no I don't.

I asked a friend that owens a boat shop and he didnt know either. Just be carefull with the spray stuff, some of it will melt foam I'm sure.
I seen a guy in a john boat one time that had takeing thos foam swim noodlles like you buy at walmart, and cut a couple three foot sections and stuck on top of his gunnels to hang lures and stuff on.

I just got some from this website: Richard Wheatley Fly Boxes & Inserts Cheapest I could find, they were here in two days, and they're exactly what I was looking for.

I use that foam window seal tape. Get the heavy 1" tape (sometimes it comes with new air conditioners) & bput a few strips at various spots around the boat. I have a few wooden clothespins with the 3/8" foam tape on them. I keep a few on the vise stem & the light. I have one on my vest to hold the 2nd fly while rigging a nymphing setup etc. It's cheap & easy to replace.. If you want a sheet try some of those 1/8" foam sheets from a craftstore. I glued one to a board to display flies on after I tie them.......

I found some for my boat at Sportsman's Warehouse in Idaho Falls. One package came with 2 pieces. 1 piece was ribbed and 1 piece was flat, both pieces already had the adhesive applied. I think it was around $4.00

I would look for 1/4" sheets of foam at a craft store, and then use poster mounting tape (think foam itself, super sticky) to attach it to the side of the boat. (if I didn't want to buy the stuff from Feather Craft that looks pretty ideal.

Cliff Outdoors makes one with a magnet as well for very small stuff. Might be quite handy for stillwater anglers. Cliffs Float Patch
