striblue Jay Horton gave me the idea of getting Bulsa wood dowls so you can cut them to the shape and length you want... makes it better than buying precut Poppers....

pmjasper I love this fly! It looks similar to a tuna trolling lure. I could see it being used out in the deep blue depths for tuna or marlin on a heavy weight flyrod. I can't wait to try and make some myself.

striblue Actually John I will be making pencel poppers with this color for the sping need to have a spreader..just the right size small popper.

Very Nice

Reminds me of that ol Gibbs Blue Mackerel color. John, have you put that big boy on a scale? Just a thought...If you put a smaller spreader toward the front can you make a pencil popper and save it for me?

striblue Yes Mark..good pun intended... it is a 8/0 and the gap is a lot bigger that you thing if you held it in your hand... but maybe the safest way next time id go to a 10/0....

Dble Haul That's quite a mouthful!

It may be the angle of the picture, but do you have any concerns about the hook gape? It could be fine and I'm just not seeing it fully, but I'm wondering about hooking ability.

Your not gonna catch small fish with that one.
