I made this fly a day or two before catching this guy. My box is loaded with foam flies.
This is a pretty easy foam pattern. All you need is a Beavertail cutter from River Road Creations - or just do your best to cut a pattern with scissors. I've caught a lot of fish on foam flies made with and without foam cutters.
- for this size cutter, I'm using a TMC 8089 #10 for bass. Smaller or larger cutters may require a different hook size.

- Whatever thread you have but not something small that is used for nymphs.
- Rubber Legs
- 2mm Foam - from the fly shop, walmart, whatever.
