Foam for popper head

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a local source for 3/8" white foam cylinders. I need to tie up a few poppers for a trip next week, it is a little late for mail order.

Thanks in advance

Gig harbor fly shop, Sorry. Give them a call and see what they have, I know for sure they have medium size white popper/slider heads and a large black popper/slider head.

Its large rainys float foam, comes in one long piece, cut to size. I have seen it at sportsmans warehouse in fed way most recently, but I can't remember where I got mine
Waters West has them. I was just in there and saw them. Love the Banger with a stinger. One of my favorite flies for coho.
you should love it, it's one of yours. Tony gave it to me a couple of weeks ago so I could copy it. It seemed to be the favorite last year. I procrastinated on getting the foam and now looking for some around here.

If you don't mind the color, you can buy round weather stripping by the role at most hardware stores. I've made some pretty cool bass poppers from it and use model airplane paint to make it the color I want. It's gray to begin with and comes in many diameters. Cheap, too.
