    Thank you for getting this product. Thanks Troutman for suggesting it. I can't wait to try them out. I've been doing the panfish thing as of late. Any smallie water active with this drought?

    I might add that Troutman's suggestion to theses flies will more than likely pay off for LRO....They are truley beautiful poppers that appear to be well constructed. I got the sneak peak at them yesterday fresh out of the Fed Ex mans hands! I could not work at LRO, after watching Daniel tear into a package like a kid at Chrismas! I too would fall victim to this sort of behavior! He wouldn't let Paula touch them!!!! I kidd! They are some good looking poppers!

    I was like a kid in a candy store this afternoon when I went by LRO to restock my popperbox. I will be slinging a few of them tommorrow. Thanks again Byron, Paula , and Daniel for carrying this product. Tightlines to everyone this weekend!

    I am in the process of making a bunch of poppers at home. Daniel brought in one each of Walt's poppers yesterday so I could photograph them for the website. It never occured to me to use rubber legs for tails. I'm going to give that a try. I also noticed on these poppers that they use stiff dry fly hackle. I always used soft Chinese neck hackle. This looks a lot better to me and the fish must agree.

    I picked some up today in hopes of getting some time on the water tomorrow. They looked really good.
