Default Re: Popper Swap, Fall 2011

First up was Marks popper. It landed an early season Bluegill. I was a bit over gunned with a 7wt but this early in the season, I'll take it. And I hooked him on the right side!!!

Dang, I'm not sure what surprises me more-- someone actually catching a fish on a fly I tied or catching a bluegill on top in February--- You did a great job finding a bluegill with an overwhelming death wish!

I know! I was fishing weighted buggers until I saw a swirl, staying true to my screen name I grabbed your popper and went for it...

Next up was Famill00's soft body foam popper. It was the last hour of daylight and fish started breaking and swirling. The good news is this fly catches fish. The bad news is that a big, toothy Pickerel swam off with it before I could snap a pic . If you haven't fished it yet this fly has an awesome pop. I wanted to bite it myself as I watched it work. Make sure you get this one wet guys.
