Micheal S. gave me a larger version of this frog, and the bass completely destroyed it. I tinkered with the pattern until I could get the tying down to less than 5 minutes, and here is the result: Hook: Size 6 Mustad 3366A Thread: 240 denier thread to match under-body Over-body: 3mm closed cell foam cut to 1/2" wide Legs: Flat rubber legs, 4 strand wide, and 1 strand Under-body: Chenille, yarn, etc. Eyes: 4mm dolls eyes Glue: Craft glue or CA Markers for finishing touches.
Distancing myself from the public in the hobby room, tying flies in anticipation of good weather coming. I needed to replace the frogs that Mike S. gave me a few months ago. Then again Scott F. convinced me to try tying some DB poppers.
This fly line is lightly used. It is a sinking head, not a sink-tip. The running line floats and is a high visibility yellow. I traded it out of one of my reels for a compensated sink. I find that I need some Gama B10S size 6 hooks. I'll trade you this line for 50 of them.
Word went out. Six total anglers accepted the invitation. 3 bank walkers 1 kayaker 1 Stand-up paddle board 1 kickboat Weather held for most of the day.
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. http://hillcountryflyfishers.com/
9 members showed up to chase the white bass up the creek. Sinking fly lines or sinking flies were the ticket to hooking fish. Most of the fish were on the small side with only a few dozen over 10". The run just hasn't started yet. The further we went upstream the clearer the water became. I think this has a bit to do with the powerboats that come into the area. Once you get past where the bigger boats can reach, the water cleared up nicely.
