Thanks, would not have noticed if you didn't mention it.

Nice looking fur.

Chug, I like your Scud.  Rick, I will try some horsehair that I have.  You inspired me.

Chug, that is a very nice tie, I may have to give them a go, oddly enough I was thinking about your iron dun soft hackle today and studied your sbs again. I’m on a streamer kick right now, but when I’ve scratched that itch it’s on to your iron blue dun pattern, and more flymphs and soft hackles.

thanks for all you do here and other places, Mike.

First attempt at a popper. Eyes and paint after drying.   Question:  should I trim the hackle at the bottom to expose the hook point and allow popper to sit without having material on the water?

I wouldn’t.  There’s other things you can do but that bug will hunt!!!   
This is what goes here....

Squeeezy, looks good,  Coptic sketch markers at Michaels, they worked okay but a spray bomb really didn’t work that well for me. I bought the same color popper bodies that you have. I think in hind sight I may go with the white bodies, that would seem much easier to color. If I had all the money in the world a airbrush would be ideal, but I’m not that into poppers.

Mike.
