Bass action on poppers

5 posts in this topic

Casey took me out in his canoe for some evening bassin' . I tried some foam blockhead flyrod poppers I made this weekend that worked pretty good. Got a few bass and a sunfish

Nice work Cyber!

Are those blockhead poppers tough to make? Figure the the foam would pretty much always stay on top compared to deerhair poppers.

Well Marc, the deer hair poppers are a lot more fun (and difficult) to tie, but the foam poppers DO float better, longer. If you treat the hair poppers well with floatant they will last through several fish.

My favorite though, is the Yellow Turkey, made from the cork of a Wild Turkey bourbon bottle and large yellow hackles. It's a killer. It might be the odor of old bourbon that does it.

Bass just tear 'em up. Thus,(sigh) I have to keep making more of them thus (sigh) sipping more Wild Turkey.

But only the 80 proof. That 101 is pure swill!! grin.gif

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
