I have been fly fishing with poppers since 1962. From what I remember, this Electric Damsel BoogleBug slider, is a descendent from a bug that was used in Virginia, for smallmouth bass. It is very similar to old poppers, fly fishermen used on those great smallie rivers.BoogleBug BoogleBullets are certainly sliders. Sliders differ from other poppers. They are made to slide through the water, while pushing only enough water to get the fishs attention.This BoogleBullet is mounted to a #6 Mustad Signature Series hook, the sharpest made by Mustad. The premium cork body is bonded tightly to the hook. Several coats of high gloss polymer and graphics, combined with rubber legs, marabou and stiff hackle, make BoogleBugs extremely durable and beautiful.The #6 BoogleBullet is deadly alternative to most popper colors. You can cast this popper with a 6 or 7 weight rod.Use short strip retrieves or just let it sit and drift with the current. Smallmouth bass will rise and sip it from the surface. Let it sit on the water, offering only an occasional twitch for bluegill. Largemouth Bass may prefer a faster retrieve. Always experiment with retrieval rates when fishing for bass or bluegill.ByronFREE GROUND SHIPPINGORDER ONLINE OR CALL 865-448-9459Little River Outfitters is a fly shop and mail order company located in Townsend, Tennessee, a gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
