If you haven't seen the awesome poppers on the FLY FISHING AND TYING OBSESSED blog then check it out. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know that I mostly tie small flies for trout, but these poppers looked so cool that I had to tie myself a few.

These are not quite up to the same quality or standard but they sure are pretty.

The above two flies were tied on a #8 hook, and the below photo is just to compare them to the normal flies I tie.

  2. lets try that again. Your poppers look great. I have always has a hard time painting them cause I shake. Really cool of you to link Jeff's blog on yours!!

  3. Thanks so much for linking my blog. You did a great job painting those poppers. The dots are all perfect- I tend to smear some of mine. How did it feel to work on such a large fly? In the second picture, it looks like the popper could eat that guy! Awesome job!

  4. Good looking poppers for a first try! I love fishing poppers and have a few on my site.
