now i spoke to ken about these and it turns out he got a dremmel tool because it was cheap not really that he wanted to set out and do poppers so had to get a tool he just picked one up cheap and came up with this baby below absolutely awesome i love it , I'm also going to have a go at these feck have you seen the price of popper heads in the shops and there always bucket loads of wine corks in my house .
it gets better
so here is his latest batch of frog poppers kens done i love the idea of the chenille on wire never thought about doing that before and of course it will stay together a lot longer with sharp teeth than foam will , don't get me wrong i love using foam but unless you strengthen it with epoxy (like the foam heads i do) the stuff just gets wasted after a couple of fish which is a pain in the butt ,wire you can just bend back into shape .
i can just see this being thrown in amongst the Lillie's and having either a pike or a largemouth bass just exploding on the surface just looks completely right (well maybe a touch less glue on the leg there ken) and id have every faith in using one hats of to you for a great looking fly
in case anybody thinks I'm sucking up here , well absolutely not ill give the greatest respect to anybody who can come up with something hand made like this that will fool a fish into thinking its the real thing and to any fly tyier who makes works of art like these above , in fact its got me going with a million ideas on these so I'm now going to get a dremmel and start doing my own i have a couple of places these would go down a storm on ,
its probably to late in the season where ken is to catch on these but i cant wait to see pictures of bucket mouths and pike that have been fooled on these ......
hats of to ya bro
