February Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

 

Here's a couple of poppers I finished up yesterday. Plan to use them for bass, chain pickerel, pike. Might even fish them in salt water.

Is that a foam body with UV resin?

Nice paint jobs philly, how do you think they'll hold up top getting crushed?

Thanks, Vincente. Permanent markers not paint. They should hold up pretty well. There's a coat of thick UV resin on the inside of the head which should help. Like any foam body, a critter with teeth will leave an impression. I don't think anything in fresh water will bite the tail off, but in saltwater a bluefish could definitely remove the tail.

Philly, you made them from foam not the kit? Interesting, I believe I might try that.
