Slum Hopper

Simplify your foam game



After we came up with the Project Hopper, I quickly realized that I didn't like to tie it very much due to how long it took to cut out all of the foam pieces.  I liked the rounded foam body and how it was attached to the hook, so I started tinkering with a more simple foam bug.  The Slum Hopper is named such because I was literally just grabbing stuff int he junk pile of my desk to tie it.  Even though it is straight out of the gutter of the slums, it absolutely fishes...  It will ride high, and it has a great hook that will stay sticky sharp and turn it over on every cast.  The best part is that you can tie a TON of them in very short order.
