Poppers, Sliders & Divers Show Us Your Patterns

Recommended Posts

I do like that natural cork look of those poppers.  Actually more "buggy" than almost all painted poppers.

Actually it's a misspelled word play on "al dente" as in quick or slightly undercooked pasta. The correlation being the poppers are not painted so they are quick to make but not entirely done. 

Yeah, that makes more sense (al dente = undercooked (not entirely done) instead of soft).  In any case, they all look great.  I envy your productivity.

Yeah Mike, i like the natural cork and I'm not sure why I paint so many of them. Winter blues I guess. I may try dying a few of them to see what that looks like.

Thanks Niveker but my productivity is maybe 6 to 8 flies a month on a good month. I bought a huge bag of cork popper bodies in all sizes and shapes about 20 years years ago. I used up all the large ones for floating striper jigs but I still have a hundred or more bass and panfish size bodies to use up. time to get cracking.
