My wife got me a copy of "Tying Flies with Foam, Fur and Feathers" by Harrison Steeves for father's day so I've been tying a bunch of foam terristrials. Sorry the picture isn't very good and the flies are a bit ratty, but they have been catching fish. :D

The silly looking one with the bead eyes works best. :rolleyes:

Nice looking flies. I'm not big into the terrestrials, but I was on a pike last week, and hoppers were everywhere on the water, even as far as 250 yards off the shore. The pike didn't pay much attention, but I'm sure Trout would have.

I would have to say stimulators and sofa pillows make the top of my list for terrestrials.

Hello,
Summer is for me the most interesting time to flyfish with those kinds of flies.
take a look of what we use in France :

<snip>sofa pillows make the top of my list for terrestrials.

What the heck is a sofa pillow? Are you fishing for whales or something with your old couch? ;)
