One thought on “How to make Steelhead Rags

  1. Greetings,
    You have no idea how excited I am to have stumbled upon these directions for making steelhead rags! My husband has been looking for the white window foam for ages now as he swears by his steelhead rag lures – which he is currently out of. He has looked and looked but has been unable to find the foam. I did a google search after reading this article but I’m still unsure which backer foam is recommended. I would LOVE to surprise him with a roll of 1/4″ foam (his favorite size) if you could give me a bit more guidance as to which foam to buy. Do you have a favorite place to buy from?
    Any tips would be most welcome.
    Thank you,
    Sue Carbaugh
