    Generally the fly gets beat up so bad if it works well that the whole fly is trashed after? a couple of good days on the water.. Foam flys are cheap and easy to make so make plenty to spare..

    Yes these types of foam? poppers work as well or maybe a little better then traditional hardbody poppers. But the nicest thing about foam poppers is they are easy, fast and cheap to make.

    I usually cut it bigger then I need it at first. I dry fit it to the body then cut it closer to size before gluing. With foam and superglue you get one shot? at it because the foam sets up on contact. It is easier to leave the foam oversize and trim it after gluing to keep the fly even and balanced.
