Title: Bass Popper
Post by: Avid Yak Fisher on July 03, 2013, 02:33:52 pm
Well I'm back! I know its been awhile since I have posted. I have been posting mostly on my Facebook Page. Since I last posted, I have been tying a handful of bass poppers that I am busting to use now that bass season is open. I have also been stocking up on some foam spiders and foam ants.

Sorry. I posted without adding all the pictures I wanted to post in the first place. Here are the other pictures. Avid

Those look great.  I've been spinning deer hair to create the head on my poppers, what are you using to create yours?  The uniformity leads me to think of pre-made from something like balsa but there tends to be different options these days so you never know.

I also spin deer hair but only when I am in the mood to make a mess. The poppers here are foam poppers, just glue and paint.

The high school student that worked at the fly shop back home with me one said "the best time & place to spin deer hair is at a buddy's house" because of the mess it makes :)

I didn't want to start another thread for the poppers I make, so I'll just keep posting them here. This is just one of many I have made waiting for the bass season to start.

AYF, do you make those poppers, or do you buy them? Because they're fun to make.

Yes I do make them myself, I very rarely buy flies anymore. These are a small mix of salt and freshwater foam poppers. I also make deer hair poppers in both the poppers and the divers. But only when I can get good hair. I have also made a few foam spiders for the sunfish action.

For this bass season, I have upped my popper's. With my airbrush kit set up and armed with a wide rang of poppers and paints, I am now able to get pretty creative with these things. Here are a few that will be in my fly box opening day.
