    Default Foam shop in CPT ?

    Anyone know the name/contact details of the foam shop that sells offcuts in Voortrekker Rd, opposite the cemetary ?

    Any other suggestions for good places to get foam closer to the CBD ? Sean told me about Sondor, they are in Parrow Industria.

    I am looking for tubes (hopper bodies in 5 mm) and sheets (2,3 mm)

    Cheers,
    Eben

    There is a store just near Rasputins ( Don't pretend you don't know where that is!! ) which sells a whole bunch of different polystyrene and foam.... Its called Polystyrene world or something I think....

    Otherwise try Isoboard if you can find it.... Its a roof insulation material. Gimme a shout if you in town cause I've got some in my car which I've been holding for Juan for a while.... I'm sure he won't mind me giving you some!!

    Cape Rubber is a good place to look for materials aswell

    When you get to Sondor you must simply ask them for a cut-off. They will give this to you for free.

    For foam cylinders contact Flyfishers Unlimited in JHB. They sell the Rainy's products.

    PS I was checking out that fly last nite to make templates for some more, the leeries seemed to like it

    Do you ever cover your crease flies with a foil type film, or do you leave them white like that one ?

    EBF,

    Try and get plain white, once you have tied the crease fly and it has dried - take some permanent markers and put all the detail you like onto the foam - then get some some loon soft head - and coat the thing - it only comes off if the fly has been severely savaged by toothy fish - but then the fly is normally stuffed anyway.

    If you cant get hold loon of soft head - give me shout and I will send some out to you from here.
