Troutman, those are awesome. I notice that you put the hook closer to the bottom of the foam as where I go through the middle. As I said this is my first time making poppers, is there a reason you go close to the bottom like that? I love that red and white. I am tying on a number 8 hook with 3/16 foam bodies. Is that close to what you are using for blue gills? I have been using #6 hooks and 3/8 bodies also. I also used your ideas with the #2 pencil popper bodies from waspi on a number 6 hook where I got both a cup popper and a slider out of each body.
