Post: ...sis.. I went to that link and now I understand about the eyes.. how do you do that.. I mean divide the foam to form the eyes???
Ill have to remember about the sinking line with leader.. sounds like something the fishes would love to "see"..
With the cylinder foam, cut a chunk (maybe an inch) or just hold the foam rope by the eye of the hook leaving enough room to whip finish. Then do figure 8's with the thread to secure and divide.
A true Boobie is tied on shorter hooks and have very long tails. A lot of movement while it floats up and down like a Gartside softhackle.
