kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Had to downsize because I have no 2mm pink foam, which doesn’t bode well for my Pookie needs. Found this stuff at a craft store in a pack of 3”x5” sheets in assorted, very bright colors; a little thicker than standard 1mm. Probably should have gone with a chartreuse tag for a bit more contrast.

Carnage Pink Pookie

Standard

Westslopes in the Flathead valley are about as stupid for pink as they are for orange.

Sickels’ Foam is Home variation

Material list is basically the same; omitted the foam wing and subbed in the Parapost, which is much more vibrant and easier to pick up in the suds and shadows. Here’s the video showing head construction, if you’re interested; takes a little more time but adds a bit more foam, which is a good thing.

Had good luck with the purple one so let’s see what else works. Forgot the micro tubing but I doubt it will make any difference (coated the shank with Super Glue before I wrapped the KF).

Add the hackle and it becomes a bullethead Stimi; nice video. Not a fan of floss bodied dries or that hook so I made a few minor changes.
