tied by Bugsy
Fly Type: not available Deer Hair, Poppers/Sliders,
Target Species: not available Freshwater Bass,
Material List:
Hook: Stinger
Thread: White or to match
Weedguard: Hard Mono (Optional)
Tail/Skirt: Rubber leg material
Body: Cow elk or antelope, stacked and trimmed
Eyes: Round "audible" or solid plastic
Tying Instructions: Red/White and "Frog" colors are standard, but you may choose any combo. The version shown has gray hair stacked together with the white to add color variation to the body. Use deer if you wish, but I much prefer elk or antelope. Trimming the body is a bit more tedious than most poppers. Coat the face with vinyl cement to improve "popping" action.
Presentation Tips: Short twitches with long pauses have produced well.
