Wes/Tony: You have to be careful of the type of ear plug you use some, as I found out, actually absorb water.
Here's a couple of ear plug sliders. Don't use them much. http://www.flytyingforum.com/uploads/gallery46830788425dc.jpg http://www.flytyingforum.com/uploads/gallery4683076362934.jpg -- Jerry Caruso [EMAIL PROTECTED] "All things considered, I'd rather be in Philadelphia" -------------- Original message -------------- From: Anthony Spezio <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Wes, I should be downstairs today, will check the hook # and see what smallest size I have. I think it might be a sz 10. You can make real good poppers, gurglers and sliders from foam earplugs. They are easy to shape and take colored pens well. I used a lot of yellow ones but I have seen them in a blue color. These will float forever Tony --- On Tue, 10/14/08, Wes Wada <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: From: Wes Wada <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Subject: [VFB] Re: Popper help needed To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2008, 10:24 PM Thanks again... How small in size do the hump shank hooks go? Are Mustad and Tiemco the only brands that make these?

It gives more gluing area and more stability to the body especially in the smaller sizes. Phil New MapQuest Local shows what's happening at your destination. Dining, Movies, Events, News & more.
