Got the idea for this Rogue variation from a pic over on Westfly; thanks Chad. Lots of steps here but, again, pretty simple to tie and although I love bulletheads, this should be a bit more durable; change colors to suit your needs.

Part 1

Insert needle in vise

fold a strip of foam (hook gap width), push it onto needle

start tying thread on needle

fold foam over needle, adjust to where you want the first segment

wrap thread around foam, pull slowly but firmly so you don't cut the foam and add a couple more wraps

trim butt at an angle
