    Today, at the shoe lace re-tipping factory, where I work, they gave us some new ear plugs to try. At first glance, I could not believe the coincidence, as they were chartreuse/cerise colored, which is my favorite Yarnie color combo. Since shoe lace re-tipping is fairly mentally taxing, the company give us a morning break to clear our minds. During my break, I had an epiphany about a new fly design incorporating my new ear plugs.

    So tonight when I got home, I removed the ear wax from my ear plugs and created the Foam Yarnie. After all, you have Foam Hoppers, Foam Beetles, so why couldn't you have a Foam Yarnie? I just can't imagine a much better combo that a one-inch white Thingmabobber, 8-10 feet of 12 pound mono, a nice size gob of tungsten putty and a Foam Yarnie for ripping chrome lips.

    This fly also has a dual purpose. Imagine this,I am gently floating down the Hoh in the Princess seat of my buddies Clacka when a dude with a radio antenna for a fly rod starts yelling, "Hey you calf ropin, bobber throwing, putty using redneck, why don't you go back to Montana where you belong?'" I can simply remove the ear plug from my hook and slide it into my ear a go back to bobber watching in peace and tranquility. May I present< the Foam Yarnie:

    The real funny part of this thread is that each of the flies posted will catch fish, especially dumb ol' Steelhead.:)

    I need to get ready for a trip I'm leaving for tomorrow, but I was thinking of doing something like a yarn-truder, or a yarnpie for the fast riffles. Maybe a griffith's yarn-gnat... There is a lot of potential here. Do I smell the December fly-salon?

    We still haven't addressed emergers, chironomids, and terrestrials.

    So, it has been a real hectic week at the shoe lace re-tipping plant where I work. We have really been under the gun with this whole Black Friday thing going on. After dinner, I grabbed a tall boy PBR, turned on the game and set down at the fly tying table to relax. I thought that if yarn worked so well on steelhead, it just might work on the tail water trout as well. Because if there's anything dumber that a steelhead, it has to be a tail water trout. All you got to do is throw midges and SJW and you look like the greatest fisherman of all time. So I quickly threw a few smaller Yarnies together. No comments on the head on my gnat. I know it's a bit big, but I heard fat chicks dig that. I brushed the worm by design to give it that flossie look.

    In almost every school of salmon and steelhead, there are always a few who just won't take a fly, or a herring, or a piece of shrimp. Why is this?
    THEY ARE VEGETARIANS! I offer the VEGGIE YARNIE for those "particular" fish.
