A couple weeks ago my salt water club had a tying class on poppers with gill slits. Not a new idea but he expanded on it a little bit. He supplied some pre-made bodies for the class and we worked on those. He gave us some pre-formed bodies to take home with us and I brought some "templates" from him. Reason being the poppers we were doing were for salt water and I wanted to downsize them to bass and pan fish size. This is what I came up with. Something to throw with my 6 wgt.
