Hook: #10 Mustad Kink Shank
Body: Cork Painted with spray and clear coat
Tail: Streamer hackle fiber
Hackle: Weby white hackle
Legs: White silly legs

Noticed my warm water boxes looked like the bottom of some folks drift boats at the end of the season :o Trying to get them looking respectable again. Going take out all the not fished with patterns and restock it with reliable ones.

Those poppers such strong medicine you fish them using rope instead of line? :lol:
They look good, wonder if some in purple would work for those golden bones?

:) Was trying to figure out a anchor system for my toon and thought it would be a neat back drop.

Thank you :)

I've never caught a G Bone on top. Purple seems to draw a reaction from them even when the berries aren't falling. Just might have to try that. If nothing else it might get a smallie after a dragon fly.

Like the shot on the line. Sure looks cooler than the traditional "in the vice" shot. Poppers look great too!

Take Care,
Timbros.

When Roger Lowe closed his shop he had to zip lock bags of pre-shaped cork bodies cheap.

My lathe is down right now too. I fear a new motor is the only fix. I'm hoping it can be rewound.
