This week we revisiting foam. Foam is becoming a very popular night and seems like everyones favorite….. 6 till you get tied out. Drayton will once again be in the house showing us how the Foam Master does it. We have a fresh shipment of Rainy’s foam and two huge orders of materials for your tying pleasure! Gary…. I got your jaws ordered and hopefully they will be in tomorrow night. Need body cutters? I have 10 of the River Road Creations Small and Medium tapered body cutters everyone loves so much.
I’m not sure what flies Dr. Drayton is going to tie, he wont tell me….. Super Secret! I am gong to tie my ant caddis, very similar to the extended body caddis I did last week but much easier and more effective.
I have a list of those materials on the tying video. Other materials to keep in mind are:
Hooks – Dai-Riki #730’s in sizes 10-14
Thread – Unithread 6/0 in appropriate colors or MFC Premium Tying Thread. I like the MFC because it is non-waxed and super strong. The non-waxed thread lays flatter and is not as bulky when you tie with it.
Body Material – Foam, Rainy’s or Craft Store Foam. Rainy’s is a much better foam but Craft Store Foam will do in a pinch.
Underbody – Ice Dub
Legs – MFC Speckled Sexi Legs or any other rubber legs material you like
Wing Material – White Poly, McFlyon or Hareline Parapost material for synthetics. Elk or Deer for a natural wing.
Body – What ever Body Cutter you like to use, River Road Creations tapered body cutters in Small and Medium are very useful!!!!
These are just a few materials to think having. Please bring one of your favorite patterns and share with everyone
