Do you carve all the heads?
Yes. All hand-made.

I would love a step by step demo, those are really good looking poppers.
I promise that I'll do it (a step by step) as soons as I can. It will take a while tho. Maybe 2 to 3 months. But I'll do it.

If I could afford it I would fly down there with lots of material so you could make me dozens.
Its a really hard work making them and have some friends asking for some here in Brazil. I'll see what I can do. But dont come here just to have some poppers done...its cheaper to send them to USA

Tx! I'm really worried. Hoping it goes fine.

Renato,
Welcome to NAFFF. I too am a new member, but not new to flyfishing. Your poppers are better than anything I ever tied, and I catch fish on mine. You will be the envy of every member if you can go out and fish for peacock bass on a regular basis. For those who have never caught a peacock, they are like a small mouth on steroids, and when you think you have them, then they see the boat, all your fly line is off the reel again.

Those are great Renato, I tend to carve them as pencil poppers but those look like they bubble and sound as loud as peacocks love.
The painting is great also.
Welcome
I am new to the forum as well, but been flyfishing for a long while now.

Tx Armando!
Problably pencil poppers are harder to break, but I dont have access to an appropriate hook for that. If I make this ones as pencil poppers, they wont float well.
Also this shape makes a louder noise as you said, what is great when fishing predators like peacocks basses.
Finally, my wife just gave birth to my first son, so I am not online very much, not fishing and not tying too....I hope to be back soon with some more flies and problably fishing pics.
Cya.

I use an Airbrush (I am not sure, but I believe its called aerography) and some different kinds of inks - especially fluorescent (luminous) ink, for orange, pink, green, red and chartreuse (lemon-yellow) colors.
Hope I answered your question. Any doubt feel free to ask.

Could only fish once since his birht
Hope he grows fast so I can take him with me

i thought you used an airbrush! they look great. haha i carved up some balsa wood poppers and divers the other day, and i tried painting them with acrylic paint and a paint brush. they didnt look so good, but i hope the largemouth bass will still eat them!

If they dont like your poppers, come over to Brasil and give them (the poppers) a last chance with a fish we call Traíra (Hoplias malabaricus) - Its probably the most comon fish in Brazil, but I am not sure u know it.
