    Echo EPR (popper rod)

    I thought I would consult the expert's here. I'm in the market for a new smallmouth popper rod. This rod would be more for covering water and flats then pinpoint casting. Medium size poppers. Was thinking the 9 foot 8 wt. Good choice or bad? Any other suggestions?

    SBS Billy's BGG Fly

    Billy's Big Girl Getter: 1. Take the tips of 4 schlappin fibers and tie into place on a 15 mm fish-spine articulated shank. 2. Do a few wraps of yellow game-changer chenille. I like and use yellow as a hot spot on a lot of my bass poppers. 3. Take a single schlappin feather and wrap as...

    Home-made foam popper heads?

    Anyone here sculpt their own popper heads from foam? I have a couple of types. I don't happen to have any purchased popper heads in my stash of materials, so I thought I'd try to make some.

    Fourth of July Patriotic Popper

    I don't know what possessed me to design such a hair pulling popper! But the end result is stunning. I took a pencil and drew the design on the popper that was in my head, and thought I can do that.. Then trying to make it uniform and get the lines to connect underneath was something I didn't...

    look what I found when a new watch was purchased. Since the sandals aren't in-style anymore, it's harder to find the dense foam. It's about an inch and a half tall...

    Popper Made From Random Junk At A Conference...

    I don't tie much, but I thought this was worth sharing. Here's a crazy popper I tied out of things I could find on the "supplies" table at my work's "all company" conference. Earplug, pepto bismal wrapper, advil wrapper, candy wrapper. Rubber legs from the hotel bathroom shower cap.

    Pattern Mini-Squirrel Popper

    I began tying the Mini-Squirrel Popper as a small version of my Mule Deer diver. Eventually swapping squirrel tail for the bucktail to get the contrasting barring, and clipping the legs shorter. The result, over the past few seasons is what you see here. An easy to tie, durable and very...
