Epoxy vs Foam Heads


James O Durbin II said...

I have used both on my flies. The foam makes the head swing harder form left to right. The epoxy makes the fly swim more realistic in the water though. I have also found that the larger foam head seems to cause more aggressive strikes, presumably because of the more aggressive action of the fly.

Hi James, we use intermediate sinking lines alot, and I like foam heads when the water gets shallow on the dropping tide...the foam suspends the fly nicely.

Thanks for the comment,
