Easy way to get started with poppers!
Reviewer: A viewer from Erie, PA US
This product was an easy way to get started tying poppers. There's alot of things you can do with them, and many species of fish can be caught on the surface - not just warmwater fish. Try them in the evening for brown trout! I generally tie size 8 for panfish, and size 4 for bass. Just make sure you use a good adhesive to keep the hook in the body and they last through many fish.
Best Poppers around
Reviewer: A viewer from Carbondale, IL US
I will echo what others have said...these are great poppers. I use mostly the size 4 and 1 TCS for bass. But I have had lots of luck on the size 8 too. They are also great for making "sneaky petes". Just put the body on backwards so the point is towards the eye and you've got a killer fly for smallmouth bass. My only complaint is that the bodies are a bit hard to get legs through. For painting I color them first with a sharpie then a thin coat of paint and gloss and they look great!
Great Popper bodies
Reviewer: A viewer from Mount Airy, MD US
Overall these are great popper bodies. The only trouble I have ever had with them is the slot. Most of them need to be either widened or deepened. If you try and fit them on the hook right out of the package you will have some fit issues. I would recommend that you use an Xacto knife with either a regular blade or a small saw blade to open the slot up. Other than that, I have not had any problems with them. Love them!
Great popper heads
Reviewer: A viewer from Rochester, NY US
I bought a pack in almost each size and style. I love the pre-shaped heads with a slot already in them. Having made my own heads before, the convenience of these are great. I put enough time into painting them that I didn't want to shape them first. Of the 50 heads/hooks I got, only 1 was a little loose, the rest could be fit (sometimes with a little force) into the slot for glueing without any widening of the slot. However, some of them did start to crack the popper, but never too a point where it seemed an issue to me. Insert the hook slowly and don't worry, or widen just a little to be careful.
Hoping to buy more soon! First got to lose a few to some trees and weeds.
