Tip of the Day for Aug 13, 2003
Posted 13 August 2003 - 12:21 AM
Just simply take a sharp blade( razor, Exacto, etc) and slit the plug its entire length. Use a little SuperGlue or other CA adhesive, and attach it to the hook. Dress the fly to suit your own design.
Another way is to insert a blunted neddle ( tapestry or darning needle) directly through the center of the foam. Next, make several wraps of thread on the hook shank an whip finish. Now comes the tricky part. Cement the thread with CA adhesive and push the foam onto the hook via the hole you created with the neeedle. You have to act FAST as the cement will start to dry IMMEDIATELY!!! This makes for an almost indestructable popper assembly. Poppers are great panfish and bass flies. There are easy to tie and cheap to reproduce. Use a needle to thread through some rubber legs and BOOM!!!....automatic fish catcher!!
