Tin Pusher Anyone have success with this fly or any other surface flies for Pink salmon. I am tying a few all pink versions.

Tin Pusher I was confused by the popper13.jpg picture which shows a very sparse fly. I prefer the look of the fuller body with olive and peacock along the top.

Thanks I can hardly wait to try it out in the salt for cutties.

Leland Miyawaki I try to tie the body of my popper to be proportional to the head. I don't want to have a fat head and skinny body. Also, I top the white with olive and then peacock herl.

Tin Pusher Leland the fly on pugetsoundflyfishing is a lot fuller than the one shown here. It also has an olive overbody with peacock herl. Is one an evolved version of the other or do you use them for different conditions.

Tin Pusher Thanks Leland

Leland Miyawaki At Kaufmann's in Seattle, where I work, they are getting their popper heads from Rainy's. The size is "peewee" and "mini mee "small".

Tin Pusher I am having a tough time finding Edgewater Dink component. The companies web site is no longer there so I am thinking that they are gone. If so what popper bodies that are still on the shelves may be the last. Is there an alternative foam that anyone is using? Is there a supply of Edgewater bodies in Bellingham or Vancouver that I have not found.

Leland Miyawaki I've just begun working at Kaufmanns in Bellevue and will be there today and tomorrow.

availability of kits?

Good luck,
Reading this thread from 2003 on tying the infamous Miyawaki popper and was wondering if you still are working at a flyshop were popper kits are available. I have not tied a fly in 15 years, and then only pretty basic trout stuff. I really enjoyed tying, but my tying desk area and fishing lost out to a nursery and raising my kids. All the kids are teenagers now, and all fly fish. Getting into salt water fishing a few years ago made me realize that most of the flies I really want to get my hands on are not available commercially, and I need to DIY. Looking forward to getting back into it. Any suggestions on best locations for material and advice?

Leland Miyawaki Full crew? Just get on the boat man and park at the South Whidbey State Park day use spot. Once down on the beach, there's a couple miles of fly water. I don't think we three or four will even make a dent in the fishing spots.

Hope to see you.

Philster Sounds like you have a full crew already. Thanks for the opportunity, but I'll let you guys have the beach this time

Leland Miyawaki I'll be on the 6am Mulkiteo ferry tomorrow with Preston Singleterry and possibly Brian Lencho, aka doublespey, if he can get quit thinking steelhead for awhile.

I plan on fishing South Whidbey State Park. Park in the day use lot and take the beach trail down to the water.

Philster Hey leland. Try 27lb fluorocarbon instead of the mono. much stiffer and fits nicely in the owner size 4 hooks I'm using. Should last indefinitely also and be more abrasion resistant. I have a couple fresh super hair poppers in chartreuse (my standard) and pink for this weekend.
