  1. When the mop flies were the rage a few years ago I never thought of using the material on a popper. I would have to say that, even though I read a lot of articles, this is the first mop popper I have seen. Thanks for posting it.
  2. Bob Clouser prefers a full sink line. Sink tip is a highly specialized line. If you do not have one. get a full sink first.
  3. Rich, Could a tail like this be made out of silicon sheet material?
  4. Rob probably already has a punch for these.
  5. Thanks Rich https://rusuperfly.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=18&products_id=347 Where can we get white suede?
  6. Great start. Good to see out of the box thinking-. Hooks I suppose are personal choice. That said, I will go with my favorite 2/0 Umqua U505 when I copy your fly.
  7. Pattern below the lateral line suggests it could be a Spotted Bass. Teeth on the tongue would be a clue also. The usual range for Spots is south of St Louis. But given the warmer climate conditions, they could easily move north.
  8. Pends on the plastic. Many ZMan plastics are buoyant and will tail up behind most jigs. Mushroom head jigs are supposed to do that too, but a non-buoyant plastic bait will flop over flat after the jig is on the bottom for a while.
  9. Two big brands should be commended for taking the long view on the environment. https://www.hatchmag.com/articles/iconic-outdoor-brands-patagonia-and-columbia-support-lawsuit/7715043
  10. The winner is Rob with two suggestions. He will receive a Flathead (Blockhead variation) Popper and a kit to make his own Flathead. Second prize goes to rich who will receive two yards of satin ribbon in Kelly Galloup Rootbeer. Watch your mail.
  11. Yep, Any old ski pole will do. The hoop on the bottom doubles as a lure retriever.
