Undressed Humpy
By Joe Sanders

Here is an idea I got from my local fly fishing pro-shop. I wish I could take credit for it, but the idea is not mine. I call it the Undressed Humpy, because you don't have to dress it with floatant to make it float.

Are you tired of dressing your humpies with floatant when fishing? Are you tired of trying to keep the shell back separate from the tail material? Here is a simple trick I learned from my local pro-shop. Try substituting some of that thin foam sheet material they use in packing some electronics for the shell back. It has air in it and floats like the bubble that it is. Plus, it's easier to see while fishing.
