Mcawesome   (from prior model)
Comments: Awesome stuff. Use it in jigs and glo bugs
FLX Centerpin
McFantastic   (from prior model)
Comments: Let me just start by saying I love McFly foam. My philosophy on tying is "I'd rather slowly tie one excellent fly, than quickly tie 2 lousy ones". I take my time, I'm pretty anal about my glo-bug shape and size, as well as blood dot placement and size. Glo yarn is a joke compared to this stuff. With that said, it loves to stick to rough skin, which is a pain, but worth it considering the quality

Comments: I tie a lot of eggs for steelhead and have tried many materials - McFlyFoam is heads and shoulders above the rest. I am no expert at tying flies, but I can make 30+ good flies an hour with this stuff and a straw. I only wish they had a true red - "bright red" is too orange for me. I have to use other stuff to get a good red.

Excellent material and easy to tie. (from prior model)
Pros: Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Durability and colors
Best Uses: Fly Fishing, Freshwater Fishing
Comments: If you want to tie glo bugs, and don't have days to figure out how to do it with glo bug yarn, use Mcfly foam. Its spongy, which allows you to get your thread wraps close and tight to the hook, which is key to making glo bugs. I still scrap about every 5th glo bug tied with yarn but with Mcfly foam they seem to come out right every time. The down side is that you go through the material much faster than yarn, so it gets spendy quick. Also, glo bug yarn comes in a lot more variety of colors, which is nice. I think Mcfly foam comes in 12 or so colors but I only find one of them useful for steelhead egg paterns.
