: small poppers for 3wt

greetings and good fishing to all,

does anyone know an outlet for very small poppers such as sneaky petes, dixie devils etc.

I've had no luck with my few floaters, madame X's, lime humpys, and some foam critters presented with my 3wt.

maybe a little noise and ripple action will entice the local bullgill, bass and crappie to strike.

I've found nothing very small at bluecafefly's or others. I'm thinking size 10 and smaller.

also i do not have fly tying equipment and must buy all my flies.

thanks for any information.

They have small poppers. They also have some nice foam ants. I've been throwing the smaller sizes with a 4 wt.
