Foam Body Poppers and Foam Body Hoppers Winners!!

I can’t wait to get out this week and try out my new poppers I just received from ---- Warm Water for Fly Fishing and Fly Tying for Bluegill, Smallmouth, and Bass and More  ---- I am really impressed with these poppers because of the foam bodies. The number 8 size pattern will land lightly on the clear water at Smith Lake. The lighter presentation in clear water the better chance one has to connect. The different colors used on all 5 popper bodies will get the attention of any hungry bluegill. I ask Josh to mail me one of his hopper patterns, which was tied in size 6. The foam pattern body is tied so one can drift it or chug it. The face is designed to create a lot of drag when pulled through the water. I know this fly will be a killer in the early spring for bass, bluegill and even trout. I like to support quality fly tiers and Josh at--- Warm Water for Fly Fishing and Fly Tying for Bluegill,Smallmouth and Bass and More ---- is one the best.
I really like the color combos
Really impressed with this pattern

Awesome. Thanks for posting my flies. Don't be catching bass on those flies. Just kidding.

I would love to send you green and brown hoppers. However, I do not have those colors in that width of foam. I bought that foam somewhere about four years ago or so. I can't find it anywhere. I can send you 5 of those yellow hoppers and something else to look at and decide if you are interested.

Those do look good.

Nice ties indeed. I don't fish warm water much, so I just use the ugliest flies I've got and they seem to work okay.

Bluegill fishing on the fly.
I love it. A chance to be a kid and enjoy a battler for sure.

I love getting ready for the gills in the early spring. I may try for my 100 big bulls in one month this year. Thanks for the comment

Believe this--- at one point some years ago my buddy and I were fishing for bluegill and we ran out of crickets, and actually caught a couple of small bluegill on the bare hook. Thanks for the comment

The hoppers would not only be good for the bluegill, but the Spots I fish for on Smith Lake. Thanks for the comment

Those are some sweet looking flies! I love the color variations. The poppers should be gas especially if it's a bass on the end of your line. Thanks for sharing the info Bill

Riverwalker is tying me some black/green hoppers which should be effective as well as the yellow hopper. Thanks for the comment
