I LIKE THE DESIGN BUT I FEEL THEY WILL WORK BETTER FOR BLUE GILLS SHELL CRACKERS AND CRAPPIE.
NOT AT ALL PUTTING DOWN YOUR WORK IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD I USED TO TIE BUT DONT ANY MORE,I STILL FLY FISH BUT NOT LIKE I USED TO FOR TROUT AND BASS UP NORTH,THE BROWN ONE SEEMS LIKE IT MAY INTREST A RED DRUM THOUGH ;)

popper,
the designs are great like i said the brown one looks tempting for red drum which in itself is a bass since there origional name is a channel bass,what creatures are you trying to copy?
they may also work well for small mouths since some seem like streamers.

10-4 popper........keep you posted when they arrrive and how they did.

Tim.....do you think the low tides are from the past full moon or is it more wind driven.

The wind hasn't laid down much in the past couple weeks and can blow the water or of some creeks.





tight lines <*)))))>{

most of the flys i have caught bass on are streamers type. though i have caught small mouth on craw and stone bug flys.. brim and crappie will hit bugs with a big hook no problem.. the big hook only limits the presention of the bug over finicky fish.-it don't settle it LANDS on the water surface..

I tie several variations of the wooly Booger on a size 2 Mustad 9671. I've had luck with this pattern for Smallies, I'm hoping it'll work for LM and Pickerel. I put a straight tail because Maraboo can have too much action. I do better on a less "impressive" tail. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
