Very nice. How many coats of epoxy did the top two require?

I will have to share my farside patterns sometime.

Funny you should ask, the popper is all plastic and is the version that is tail weighted and sinks
You can sink it back to the fish if they miss or swim it just under the surface. I wonder if there is a fly paatern that does that? Good assignment for Penguin

The top pencil has a very poor paint job. I find that the plugs on the market with the best paint jobs fish and cast the poorest

Flies are the hollow fly flatwing with a lot of dashboard faded lime green bucktail and a mushy with a touch of lavender using the pre-blended flash.

Salty, the popper is plastic and is a Superstrike.. The pencil is wooden and is a Guppy/ Hess lure...A very good plastic pencil is the Cotten Cordell weighted with an extra 3/4 ounce of shot in the tail...drill a hole, put in the shot, and fill the hole with Goop.
