Hello forum. I know it's been a long time since I last posted. I have still been fishing, just not posting. So I'll start here in the fly fishing category. I would like to share some poppers I have made for my (soon to be here) bass season. I'll snoop around and do some catching up. Cheers!

I make them from small styrofoam cigar floats.
I just cut them in half, shape the face and add eyes, hackle, etc.

Very nice guys I wish I did more fly fishing, I love to tie flies just not cast them. Not that it is not fun it is a blast, maybe when I am older and the kids are going I will have more time to get back it to fly fishing. For now nice work guys thanks for sharing.

I prefer fly fishing over all others.
It's not always the right thing to do, and I have all kinds of other stuff.
But it's the connection between man, line, and fish - without machinery that I love.
To catch them on my own flies is icing on the cake.

Dayhut you got that right.

Hey, nice poppers. I never even thought about that. I have thought about tying on some jig heads. So much to do, so little time.

Another custom popper I have made for a gentleman in New York. It's a popper key chain with a silhouette of a jumping bass.

A military custom popper for a friend at work. He loves it and I am on my way to making more in a variety of sizes and styles. I really like this one. Cheers!

I would love to start making my own poppers. Never seems to be enough time when you've found the hobbies you love...

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I do make the time before or after work to do some tinkering with the poppers, it just depends on what it is I want to do if I should do it now or wait for a better time. Like epoxying. That I have learned to do in natural light, not at night under a light. These little poppers here are for bream/pan-fish that I'll be turning into earrings. I'll post them when I finished them. I also have a few of these little poppers for fishing. Tight Lines!
