    3 layers of foam, and deer hair! Cast it along a black hole's event horizon and it won't go down. Tried to stay true to the parts list, but the pink indicator doesn't do much for me.


    hook - Mustad 9671 #6
    thread - UTC 140 tan
    butt/sac - foam black
    body - 2mm foam (3 layer sandwich)
    wing - Congo Hair white
    indicator - Mcflyfoam pink
    collar/head - elk hair
    legs - medium rubber barred tan


    mash barb and attach thread at 66% mark; wrap back to point above barb

    tie in a 2mm x 2mm strip of foam

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    poke a hole in a strip of tan foam (hook gap width) and slide on at hook point

    [​IMG]


    align with hook shank and attach with wrap at the butt

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    pull foam over butt and tie in on top (not sure if this is Yeager's method but it insures the bottom foam is securely tied down)

    [​IMG]


    tie in top layer of foam (taper end)

    [​IMG]


    cut foam loop at butt; free tag end from hook point and taper end

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    tie in legs

    [​IMG]


    move thread forward and create next segment

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    repeat

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    and again

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    tie down top layer

    [​IMG]


    tie in a clump of Congo Hair (don't trim the foam yet; keeps things from slipping forward)

    [​IMG]


    tie in indicator and front legs; stroke everything back and secure with some non-tox wire

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    trim foam

    [​IMG]


    clean and stack a clump of elk hair; tie in, let it flare on top but not spin

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    clean another clump, trim off tips and spin it, pack it tight, then repeat; tie off and SHHAN

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    invert fly; using bottom of hook eye as a guide, push a razor blade straight back

    [​IMG]


    taper head

    [​IMG]


    remove non-tox, trim legs, wing and indicator and you're dome

    That think is a monstrosity and I love it. Should work well as the hopper in a hopper dropper setup, even when your dropper nymph is fairly well weighted. Thanks Scott!
