Bass poppers hand carved and sanded from balsa wood; painted with acrylic paint. I love making these poppers but they are a LOT of work.

Excellent crafting, as you say, looks like a lot of work.

Beautiful poppers, Tom!

Great handling of all those materials on your Last Chance cripple, kayo. I was working on variation of that pattern last night, trying to make something for the early big mayflies, greens and Greg drakes. Like your tie I like CDC in place of deer hair for the forward wing. I'll post a pic when I get it down.

Great work! Those look awesome. Lots and lots of work! I'd be scared to fish those for fear of losing them!

Tied up 5 of these for a local pike fly swap.

Basically a small deceiver style fly with a touch of flash.
