I've developed a real fondness for cork poppers; not only fishing them, but making them from craft store cork bottle stoppers. I hadn't made any since about this time last year, so I've been trying to get the hang of it again. Here are the first two out of the current batch that turned out half decent (i.e. fishable).

I love cork poppers and look forward to when the cork popper thread appears. Is it winter already? Nice poppers.

Thanks Poopdeck -- I love cork for poppers too. I've been toying with the idea of trying my hand at balsa poppers as well, but I need to watch a few more YouTube videos before I do that. :)
