    Hey folks. I and my two boys are really having fun tying foam bugs. Does anyone know of a book dedicated to these flies? What I am looking for mostly is a pattern book and maybe a few techniques.


    Thanks.

    Kip had it right the first time. Skip Morris has a book Tying Foam Flies for $11.51 (paperback) on Amazon. I remember looking at it at Borders a few years ago. It just didn't rise to my highest priority. There are also many web sites that have video clips, etc. that describe the use of foam in flies.
