thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
tag - UTC 140 fluoro orange/resin
rib - Spanflex brown
body - dubbing rusty orange
underwing/head - 2mm foam rust
legs - medium rubber brown
wing - deer hair dyed orange

Regards,
Scott

Those minnows color up good with sharpies!  I like those in white.  I keep black/blue/green and red sharpies with me.   Doctor up as needed.   Those crabs are awesome as well.  Very clean work.

Some poppers tied on what I consider standard foam popper bodies.  This type seems to be falling out of favor, being replaced by the double barrel popper bodies.  They seem to have disappeared from the fly catalogs I get in the mail.

Very nice, what is the wing? It’s obviously married.  
Get that knee healed I have plantar fasciitis so I know how it feels to be only able to hobble around.
