anybody ever use foam cylinders for a parachute? I was playing around at the vise today and tied up a parachute adams using a 3/32 diameter foam cylinder for parachute material. it makes a perfect parachute and is quite a bit easier to tie in and post up than calf hair. also, you can get them in whatever crazy neon color you'd like for hi-vis. here's the things I'm talking about. the actual fly is in a tree somewhere on little river.
