Create effective fly fishing poppers for everything from panfish to saltwater species with these easy to use popper kits. These Perfect Poppers come with the popper hooks you need for them included. Choose from the saltwater popper for larger fish that include saltwater species, smallmouth and largemouth bass and even pike and muskies. The pencil poppers work well as baitfish imitations as smallmouth bass poppers and largemouth bass poppers. The Tapered Cup poppers are the traditional looking popper bodies that make a lot of noise when stripped and are also great bass poppers. The Bream poppers are the perfect size for tying up some great panfish poppers.

A simple way to paint up some great popper bodies is to use the Copic Systems and Copic Markers.

Fly Tying Glues & Adhesives for your poppers.


Tying Foam Perfect Poppers

Popper instruction number 1 Popper instruction number 2
Select a hook with adequate length and gap for the size of your popper. A hump-shank hook is not necessary. Test the hook in the slot to make certain it fits tightly in the groove. If necessary, either enlarge the groove or wrap thread on the hook to increase its diameter.
Popper instruction number 3 Popper instruction number 4
Hold the popper upside down and place the hook into the slot. Squeeze a line of super glue or epoxy into the slot to fill the open cavity. Set the popper aside to dry in an upside down position. If you’d like to add rubber legs, they can be added by pushing a heated bodkin (or sewing needle) through the body of the popper. This makes a hole that runs through the body.
Popper instruction number 5 Popper instruction number 6
Remove the bodkin and force a bobbin threader through the hole you just made. Place two pieces of rubber legs in threader and pull them back through the hole. This will give you an equal number of legs on both sides of the popper.
Popper instruction number 7 Popper instruction number 8
If desired, paint the popper body with a water-based acrylic paint (like those used on plastic models) and/or with waterproof marking pens. Adding eyes will really give you a great looking popper. Stick on eyes are easy to use, or you can paint your own. Apply a gloss or clear coat finish over the eyes to protect them.
Popper instruction number 9
A wide variety of materials can be added to the tail of your popper. Bucktail, marabourubber, and hackle feathers are the most popular.
