size 8 hook or however big ya want
grizzly hackle or color to match color scheme
foam cylinder punched out of a flip flop and cut slanted at the front. color to match color scheme.

rubber legs to match.
Tying Instructions: cut a slit down the bottom of the popper body and stick it on the hook. then superglue that in place. coat the entire body in super glue. at this point the thing should start pouring off smoke in your face. dont breathe it. dont worry it wont melt and leave a hardened crusty impossible to remove puddle on yer desk either. just let it harden. then start your thread and tie on a hackle tail. then wrap the hackles to the body. finally jab yer bodkin thru the body. then stick a bobbin threader thru. insert some rubber legs in the threader and pull thru. match up and clip the legs to the desired length. color some stuff on it with sharpies.
