The Ska-opper - a revolutionary Steelhead Popper
 
This is a dedicated thread for discussing article: The Ska-opper - a revolutionary Steelhead Popper

I would not normally put an advertorial like this in the headlines but it has such a great quality video clip attached to it I'll make an exception this time. Steelheaders rejoice! Although I also think the Ska-opper will work well on big browns too in the right places...

It is indeed a great video.

I was looking for a little more background on the fly, and found a post by the creator himself explaining how to tie it, and a simpler variation of it that he frequently ties- Skopper Recipe - Spey Pages

I'm planning on trying a variation with two layers of foam on the back and palmered ice dubbing made into a brush in place of the deer hair. I bought a can of 3M's Super 77 adhesive and I've been playing with lots of two color stuff.

I'm also wondering if the fly will work on our white bass run in the spring...

Cliff,
No huffin' the Super 77. It can get quite messy. Let us know how the fly turns out.

Casey,
One of my favorite bass pond fly is a Chernobyl Hopper. Give it a try sometime.
