    Anyone know where I can purchase these online? I live in Bremerton and have two small children so it's a bit difficult to make it to the Bellevue Orvis store. I have tried to tie a few but really need the real deal to accurately copy it.

    Thanks, Ryan

    You may also want to check at peninsula outfitters in Poulsbo - they have had some tied from time to time - though with (?) fishair instead of icelandic sheep.

    I think I am setup now. I was at Peninsula Outfitters Monday and they didn't have much for poppers. How about NW Angler? Do they have much for poppers? Haven't been out there in a while.

    That's an old outdated tie. I use a doubled 25lb. Maxima leader to attach the stinger as well as icelandic sheep and gammy hooks. I have posted the tying instructions in the archives of this site, however.

    Leland,

    Have you experimented with your popper design as a tube fly?? It would seem to offer all the advantage of the original but even less weight (exchange a plastic tube for the body shaft of the first hook which you trim off anyway??). Plus, you wouldn't need to worry about tying the stinger, except as one normally does with a tube fly.

    My popper is over 14 years old and I've tried many differents ways of tying it, tubes being one of them. Others on this board have come up with ways to tie floating flies and have posted their recipes.

    NW angler hasn't been there for about a year - you somehow missed all the threads guessing what really happened with the new owner.

    Looks like I'm plumb outta my pink coho poppers and Rainys is two months away from getting my tiers any heads. All I have are the smaller searun poppers.

    Jimmy over at Patrick's should have a lot of coho poppers.

    All you guys out there that have my poppers should be using 0X tippet!

    Leland.
