Activities Meeting Fly Tying with Dan Walker!

Remember to BYOV (bring your own vise). You can tie this at home with your own front row seat via Zoom, or join us at our new venue at the Plymouth Cultural Center.

This is my first popper that 100% representing a bug.  My other poppers have been bait fish or creatures with at least some tinsel in them.  It works very well in weedy waters like Wakeley or Barton Lakes and particularly excited the bluegills, takes bass and small pike well.  I will offer the options to tie the easier marabou version or the slightly harder mop worm version.

 

Marabou Bug Mopper

Hook:  Straight or down eye gap near the diameter of foam head

Head:  Foam Cylinder square front angled back

Thread:  210 denier Danville, color not important, build a thick thread base where the head will go.

Tail:  Marabou or Mopworm twisted chenille loop, Black, Bright or Pale Green

Underbody:  Chenille to save on dubbing material.

Dubbing 1:   Narrow bump at back or body to flair rear legs

Legs:  One or two silicon rubber legs tied in this sequence

1) tie in near back leg(s) against dubbing bump

2) tie in near forward leg close to back of foam head

3) loop legs around to tie in back side front legs in forward facing loop

4)wrap the back side back leg down and against rear dubbing bump

Dubbing 2:  Dub between the legs and in front of front legs.

Tie Off and later and put the head on, it can be glued later.
