Who besides me is using foam for some traditional surface flies? Recently I've been using foam for bodies on Deer Hair Caddis (normally calls for dubbed body) and for bodies and heads on Dave's Hoppers among others. I am using the 2mm closed cell sheet foam (like Darice Foamies) for most of these.

It just seems to me like some dry flies might float better or dryer with the addition of some foam for the bodies. Your thoughts?
