I would like to pick up a couple of Miyawaki poppers for my upcoming trip to Washington. I want to try my hand at SRC. I have a few Puget Sound patterns but would like a few more. Can anyone direct to to a fly shop that carries them? I will be in the Seattle area for a few days and also on the Olympic Peninsula. One of these days I may learn to tie my own flies but for now I have to purchase them.

Some local shops carry them, but one I know of carries a knock off that looks cheesy compared the to real deal. Just order some from Orvis and they'll have them out to you.

If you need anhything when you're on the OP you'll find PT Angler in Port Townsend and Water's West in Port Angeles (Very cool shop!).

I talked with Leland this afternoon and he set my up with a couple of poppers and a clouser minnow pattern. Thanks Leland! I'll send you a picture of that two pound crappie with the Miyawaki in it's mouth.:) Can't wait to try it on the Sound.

Leland said this was guaranteed to catch fish. Of course that probably depends on how good a fisherman you are. Hoping to get some teeth marks on it soon.

I've been catching nice smallmouth bass on the Columbia with a Miyawaki Popper. This is a great sea-run cutt pattern, and it also works on lots of other fish, especially if you can fish it in some kind of current. My species list for this fly is: Largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappie, roosterfish (caught off a rocky point in Troncones, Mexico), jack Crevalle, Sierra mackerel, sea-run cutthroat trout, brown trout (in the Middle Deschutes River) and skipjack tuna. Too much fun and very addictive....

I was thinking it could work for big browns especially in the fall as they get more aggressive. Next time I'm back home in MT I'll have to give it a shot!

I just finished a fantastic late morning with a bunch of searuns over 15 and one that simply took my breath away. It took two massive sideway lunges at the popper. On the second strike he nipped the hook and force of it against the rod threw the popper up and out of the water. It was easily the largest searun I've ever turned. Totally awesome!

Poppers are great.

My one hit this morning, was a pretty agressive boil at the fly, with a miss. I stripped a bit faster and WHAM! I don't think I've ever had a cutt hit a popper that hard, and feel the hit all the way up into the rod.
