    Great info there. Putting a keel weight on a popper has been been a riddle for me.

    Dave,

    Thanks again. This thing is solid!
    I tried getting snagged-up on Saturday and it did perform better than expected.

    Just a few more days of warmer weather and its on

    Jersey, glad you like it! I've still yet to tie up a batch for this season. Gotta get on that.

    No, I haven't really sold any flies. Pricewise, I can't really compete with what they're charging for flies made offshore. . . But I'm open to offers.
