Nice work!

What glue do you use on the foam?

Nice Kermits, I'll have to keep that rolled foam technique in mind the next time I make a popper. Good stuff!

You gotta be fast with foam and CA glue. Pinching the piece together hard before it dries. I use mostly the fingernail glue. $1.50-2.50 and the double deal $1.00 at DollarTree. Some like Krazyglue have brushes. Gotta keep the holes open with bodkin👍
Use foam for a lotta stuff...8BB12AB9-5494-4699-A739-258F6D6BE95B.jpeg15B0FA88-0EF7-4693-B269-C6E2A6BAA894.jpegDE18D6BF-769A-4F60-97CB-B25723C6C768.jpeg

Awhile back I did a bunch of stacked craft foam popper bodies. I glued them with contact cement. Messy but solid. And you gotta get it right the first time. No do overs. I cut most of the plugs with improvised cutters like yours, then bought a punch set at Tandy leather. I get some good effect gluing a large sequin on the front of the cylindrical poppers, it gives them a nice dished face in the color of your choice.

Spring Peeper size!

Or a Cricket Frog, both of which are far more numerous in my parts than Pickerel or Leopards. I like those little froggy ideas, good thing to have in the 5 wt box for bluegill/bass excursions. Slightly more noticeable than a spider, yet tempting in profile and easier to cast for bass.

If it's dead calm, I do well on small spiders for picky bass. Any wind or ripple, it's like they don't even notice it. Gonna give the mini-frogs a shot this year...if I can do it without gluing the f-ing thing to my finger. I'm bad with CA glue like that.:rolleyes:
