Chell's reusable foam popper


Hook
Any size, bent shank popper hook (I don't know a "real" name)
Thread
I am cheap ... since it's all covered, sewing thread, you choose the color.
Tail
biot or hair strands to mimic tail barbels of a cricket, etc.
Body Hackle
Your choice, I've used hackle, but I prefer synthetic hair dubbing brush.
Legs
Rubber legs, two tied for a "knee" on the rear, sewed through the foam for the fronts
Body
plug punched out of flip flops

I got tired of stripping all the material off a hook and retying the entire fly after only a few fish.  I come up with this idea so I could just replace the part that gets destroyed.

The foam body is glued on after all the tail materials have been secured to the hook.  Since the foam is the part that gets torn up when catching panfish and bass, it can be replaced very easily.
