    Scott, I assume you don't wrap the foam body too tightly. That would collapse the wee air cells in it, right? Did I just say "wee"? Been watching a lot of Davey McPhail, I guess.

    Uncle Jesse, they're thin lead sheets from the x-ray films that go into your mouth. Pure lead, and thin. Can be cut with scissors, then wrapped onto the hook.

    The reason Gary used the packing foam was for its transluscency, as Joe Billingsley indicated. He felt that that quality was the trigger for the fly. If so, I think the craft foam would be easier to...

    I guess I don't understand the "no cement on dries, cement on nymphs and wets, etc.". Why not on dries? Don't say it adds extra weight. A mini drop of cement won't sink your dry flies.

    Scott, the lead wing coachman is my favorite searching winged wet. Trout seem to like chomping on it, so onto my leader it goes. Thanks for the fine (as usual) SBS.
