Re: Need help!!
To little information to answer the question.
I suspect it is a combination of casting shortcomings and whether the rod/line/leader is appropriate for the popper. To be more specific, I need more information.
I need some sense of how large the popper is and how much it weighs. Post a photo of the popper next to a dime. It would help to know the brand and model of the fly line and the length and "X" size of the leader.
A video of your cast with and without the popper would be the best.
You wrote, "I have been attempting to fish with it until my flyline got curls in it." Fly line generally does not "get curls" unless the caster uses twists the line due to an oval casting motion. Hence, the need for a video.
