Kevin Hutchison shares popper head assembly and painting, videos

The object of this series is to show some ideas, and cost savings, when making popper heads. None of the products mentioned are the absolute “best” to buy, or use, but mentioned to only give you some ideas.

The basic approach to this fly was originally published by Jay “Fishy” Fullum as the “single fold popper” in his book Fishy’s Flies, ISBN 0-8117-2616-9.

Kevin has made some modifications. Most notably is the thickness of the foam, 6mm instead of 4mm. Another noted modification is a slit in the foam for the dogleg of the hook to rest in.
