Default Popper Swap, Fall 2011

Thanks to all the participants-- this turned out to be a great swap with some great looking patterns from Kelkay's old school hand carved Balsa Wood beauties and Riptide's test tube poppers to new-fangled stuff including JoJers's stacked foam poppers, and Dan's Tube Fly Ear Plug Popper. Smalliesrule even incorporated Stealth technology in his pattern.

Lots of great deer hair work too in this one. Now the long wait for open water....

Sorry for the long delay in getting these in and back out to you.

Here they are:
