Ryan - sounds like you moved away from the deep sea that you did so well with last time we fished out in the rips for coho. I like the versatility of the setup you now use.
Prouse - the popper of which I speak is an invention of the coho popper master himself, Leland Miyawaki. Leland can best describe his fly, and will be at the Seattle flyfishing show to tie it during a tie-along session at our booth in Feb.
Meanwhile, you can find his profile in the [Members] section (see button above) and get some feedback directly if you wish.
Sean pointed out a great tying sequence for this fly, I'll ask him where it was.
