I was at the wife's family lake house for the weekend and made it out to do a bit of warmwater fishing. The lake had been off due to low water the past few seasons, but this year things look better with plenty of water and lots of plant life. With weather in the 80's the bass and bream were on the beds in the shallows and I had a good time catching fish on poppers with droppers off the back. There was a lot of pollen and algae in the water but the fish did not seem to mind so long as I took the time to clean my fly and knots every few casts.

Thanks for looking,

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!


Great stuff CR, guess it's about time to start checking up on some local ponds.

Nice going CR!  Did some myself on Buggs Island lake, but didn't have near your success...  Great pics as well!  You tie up those poppers?
There's a big difference between a dry fly dancing through
a riffle and a weighted fur ball dragging on the bottom.


No- Those just some I got online- they are quite nice with weed guards and all and are very durable though. I am a sucker for nice looking poppers. I tie most of my flies but popper bodies are not worth the effort for the results I get. 

I just need to invest in an airbrush I guess.

very nice.. 0--0making me want to hit some warm water..


Nice fish CR!    And I hope this is'nt percieved the wrong way....but I took art classes for years...trained to be a commercial artist....and painting poppers with an airbrush is'nt what its cracked up to be....your likely to be disappointed with that as well...and the cost of a decent brush system would go to waste  :(  If you can find the good soft foam poppers with the flat bottom side and cupped face....you could probably do some real nice ones with prisma color markers....thier mucho easy to work with compared to other stuff.....but even using testors model paint is'nt that tough by hand....you figure the bass usually only see the bottom of the bug anyway....which on most poppers is a solid color....or you can add the dots like on the sneaky petes.....but usually a few tiger stripes on the back and some eyes will more than suffice.  I love poppers too!!  ;hb
