Saw a youtube link on using Gorilla Glue for foam bodies. It's pretty cool. You use the "fast cure" kind and mix it with a little water. Wait for it to foam and paint it onto the hook. Once it sets you can color it with markers. On the video a guy added GG foam to the hook, then palmered a hackle through it, Made a really neat buggy looking bug.
BTW Your original link for those toothpicks or whatever is dead. Do I need some special permission to view it?
