    The washer is behind the conehead and is secured with an instant glue. The more I look at it I think that a cone and standard washer would work. I'll try to get to a stream soon to see how it swims.

    jkold, that looks very similar to my attempt. I bet it will work. Mine are very heavy too with no body weight. I might swim one this weekend.

    You might also try just putting a regular cone head on backwards...:)
