Green-Glo Popper

tied by Dart
Fly Type: Poppers/Sliders,
Target Species: Panfish,
Recommended Region: Southeast US,
Imitation: Frogs,
Material List:
Perfect Popper foam body
Green Prismacolor Marker
Red Prismacolor (or sharpie) for mouth
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
Chartreuse maribou

Tying Instructions: Basic popper instructions except once you color the body green, immediately apply the Hard as Nails on top of the body. Dab it on and the nail polish will give the paint a "melted" effect. The colors will swirl together very nicely.

For the tail, mix some wing n' flash fibers in with the maribou stem for added flash.
