thanks

where do you find a chatruse marker. I usually buy the foam popper bodies in the color I want, but I found some of a different size and they only came in white. I am tying 1/0 and 2/0 poppers. when done they are close to 3" long.

Try Little River Outfitters. I have bought several markers there in the past.
