...been wanting a whip finish tool with a larger gap then the one we bought at Cabelas. Finally got it done and made one! Post.

Wanted it specifically for tying flies like the Foam Grasshopper where the whip finish is completed mid-body.

For anyone interested and in the area - Bethany Lakes in Allen, TX, hosting an informal fly tying demo on how we tie a foam grasshopper. No set agenda; simple and easy to tie... can demo other patterns we have posted about if desired. Event.

Demo went well. Not a big turnout but still fun, even caught a couple of fish using one of the fishing flies tied during the demo! Post.

Here is a quick tie video of a simpler variant of the pattern... uses no chenille.

Rainy day, sidetracked looking at the latest fishing catalog... reeled me in! Plan to flip the body around to make a grasshopper with it.

Pattern still is producing for us on local ponds! More fun pond fishing! This time tried a pond using a 4wt and traditional fly line, then later with a one-handed spey fly line.  Really liking the one-handed spey fly line! Pond Fishing.

Here is the fishing fly that we based the Foam Grasshopper on... the Betts Bream Getter. But, this one comes from a kit we picked up from Feather Craft called the Foam Spider Fly Tying Kit made by Wapsi. Looks just like the Bream Getter! Foam Spider aka Bream Getter.
