    I'd have missed out on a LOT of great fishing without this site. Had the mistaken idea flies were just for trouts until I read Al Campbell's articles. I don't always get to read everything here,...

    greenlantern,

    Fishingfiend,

    When you try this, be sure you tie that as a test fly without an actual hook hanging down there. I say this for two reasons:

    Frank,

    I am not aware of anyone who has done any scientific studies on the differences in popper material sounds, but logic would imply that if we hear them differently, the fish would too, if...

    Another thought is that most foam poppers I have seen/used/built do not have a really 'clean' edge on the face, so the pop/sound wave may not be as 'clean' either.

    Those will fish and catch well.

    I also like a bit longer hook and tail to let the hook hang down into the water. From experience, so do the fish. It also opens up the hook point...

    Hap,

    For this to work does it have to be a large strip, or go from end to end of the roof?
