    Not to take this thread off track, but could you explain the purpose of these Ard? I've only fished with floating lines (in PA) and I thought using sink tip lines involved swapping your whole line (or reel). Is the purpose of these to let you add a short sink tip section to the end of a floating line as a kind of hybrid?

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Tied up a bunch of poppers today in preparation for spring. Most of these are tied on foam Double Barrel popper bodies, small, medium, and one large that came on the sharp point of a leg puller I bought. That frog pattern made from the large body is huge (either a 3/0 or 4/0 hook), its gonna be a handful to cast it on an 8 wt. I really like the double barrel bodies; they're very light and paint very nicely. One of these flies is my attempt to make a double barrel out of balsa. I started with one of my larger round balsa bodies and flattened it somewhat and formed a spine to give it the double barrel look. It's not perfect but turned out OK, I think I'd do better trying to form one from scratch vs. converting a round body. I haven't been fishing is awhile, can't wait for spring....

    All the ties:

    Closer shot of some of me medium size bugs, bottom on a foam double barrel, middle a balsa double barrel, and top one on a Rainy or Wapsi body (TCS I think its called):

    And the small double barrels, tied on size 6 and 8 hooks. Should work for good size bluegills and smaller bass. I will try these on my 3 wt rod (maybe with a 4wt line):
