Default Re: Dead drift a popper?

I do this often, with a small boogle bug popper. It works very well in swift rivers for sunfish and bass, its almost eery... I use regular dries all the time with no success, all though, when i use small, bright poppers, the fish dont seem to get enough of it! i land fish after fish using this method, I rarely catch fish when i actually "pop" the poppers, BUT, when i do "pop" them, i have caught bigger fish. So when i want to catch a few fish in the local river, i just dead drift whatever small bright popper i have, and if i want to catch a big one, i just dead drift the popper, and then add the occasional "pop", but this action usually scares most of the fish away
