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.

Thanks
Doug

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.

Leland.

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.

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