I am recycling some of our old flip-flops. I've sold flies constructed from old foam sandals several times on ebay. I figure, why not move some foam quickly to those tying flies for Spring. I have several kids which means I've got a few more flip-flops to buy again.
I'm not going to throw away valuable tying materials. Our family recycles more than it puts in the weekly trash bin. It makes me feel good to help the environment in this small way.
These foam bodies already have a perforation from top to tail. All you have to do is place out on the hook. In the future, I may add legs or eyes.
Anyways, working on a few flies today. Hoping to hit some water soon.
