Although rarely seen, this is a close approximation to a Wooly Bugger when it hatches.  Change color/size to suit your needs.  Wierd that I found this on a UK site; didn't think they were in to foam stuff (must be a post-Brexit thing).

nice one scott!


Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.

Turns out this is a creation of Clark "Cheech" Pierce (originally called the Foam Dragon), which makes a lot more sense. Thanks, again, Cheech for another cool fly.
