Updating the warm-water box...

Been busy updating the Warm-Water box over the past several days. I've had a lull in fly-tying for a while, so it feels good to be back at the vise. Now I just need to get these on the water & catch me some smallies! Enjoy!

Popper on the vise. Got to try out my new Clear Cure Goo kit & this stuff is great to work with! Used it to coat my poppers.

Nice work! Which CCG did you use on your poppers?

I tried the Thin first, but was making a heck of a mess. I ended up using the Thick which is a little easier to work with when coating the entire head. I was looking on their website & may try picking up one of the brushable versions - they recommend the Hydro for poppers, but I may also try the Brushable. I probably just use what I have in the kit before I buy any others though.

No buggers in this box. I have a bugger variation with a rabbit or pine squirrel strip tail that I use in another box. I have some other buggers, but don't really fish them much, so I don't find myself tying them much. Maybe I'll have to tie up a few.

Try adding Stealth Bombers, they seem to work when nothing else does.

Two thumbs up.

Don't forget some buggy nymphs with rubber legs.

Agree with Fred. Buggers are the first (and often the last/only) fly I tie on when fishing for WWFs.

Great flies! What did you paint the poppers with before you put on the CCG? I've been trying to make good poppers and they keep comming out crappy, the paint does not coat well and you can see white through it.

I actually cheated with that part. They are already green as part of an EZ popper kit I bought. Just comes with the popper hooks & popper head. I used a black & red Sharpie to get the colors I wanted before using the Clear Cure Goo.

+1

You just can't go wrong fishing a bugger when it comes to warmwater fly fishing!

LouM - thanks for the suggestion on the Stealth Bombers. I hadn't heard of them before. After researching on the web I was intrigued, now I've got a handful of those in the box in chartreuse and yellow. They remind me somewhat of the Clouser Floating Minnow that I use often, but the bomber seems like it may have a little more action & make a little more commotion on the water.

Some buggers may have to be next on the vise.

Don't be afraid to go big with them either (2, 4, etc.). WW fish love nothing better than a big meal!

elonDO,

Nice job! You've got some really nice looking ties there. I would also like to thank LouM for the heads up on the Stealth Bomber pattern. I had never heard of that pattern before either. I cranked out a couple this afternoon and they are sort of fun to tie. I was out WW fishing this evening just before dark and was bustin' them underneath on a Murray's Hellgramite pattern. The water was a bit high and still really off color from the recent rain events. I really wanted to try the Stealth Bomber but there was no surface activity at all. I can't wait to fish 'em some evening when the bass are working the top!
