Cork=traditional popper bodies 4 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Mount Airy, MD US

I have been using cork bodies for my poppers for years now. I have to say that I love them. Nowadays it seems as though the cork is getting harder to find and at times the quality is very poor. I am a traditional fly tyer guy so these really appeal to me. When you are working with the cork, you are going to have to pretreat it, paint it and then seal it. I use a Delta Ceramcoat all purpose sealer found at craft stores to prepare the cork for painting. I then use any acrylic paint for the color of the popper. Last I use the Delta Ceramcoat Gloss Exterior/Interior varnish to finish it off. Each step gets a minimum of three coats of either sealer or paint. Afterwards I let it dry for a few days. Tie in your tail and legs and off you go for the gills and bass.

Great for warmw top water! 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Georgetown, Kentucky US

Take color well from any permanent marker and last forever. Don't get waterlogged and there isn't paint to chip or peel. I think the cost is well worth it compared to the hassle of properly shaping my own popper heads. These even feature a little "cup" in the face to give it some extra POP. Use it backwards and you have a ready-made top water sliders and divers.

Fun to tie and fish 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Minnesota

I was using the hard popper bodies and decided to give these a try. While these are "soft" they are by no means squishy. I've found they take color well and are much easier on patterns where the legs go through the body. Really enjoy these so far.

Durable & nice popping action. Works with non hump shank hooks 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from IN

I haven't needed to try it with larger TCS sizes, but the #8 small size bodies bond well to non hump shank hooks. I use a 4x long #10 Daiichi 1750 or 1850 on the small size #8 body (instead of a #8 Mustad hump shank hook) to get better hook-ups on sunfish small mouths. Very durable popper.
Use a little Zap A Gap on the hook and then wind several layers of heavy thread over it where the body will be added. It is important to bond the thread to the hook. Let it set. Brush a little water on the hook and spread a drop of gorilla glue. Open the popper body gap and insert the hook. Lightly clamp the popper body gap shut for several hours. It will distort the body, but it will recover its shape after clamp is removed. Scrape off the excess glue that oozes out, before it hardens.
