Some related questions and discussion topics:
(1) Whitlock says go deer hair poppers, because bass hold on longer. Holschlag says use dense foam, blockhead style. Going both ways. Would like your opinions.
(2) Clousers dominate. I would like your thoughts on this fact. Do not disagree though.
(3) Compare/contrast Sally Hansen, Orvis head cement, epoxy, etc. What is best for finishing clouser heads?
(4) Don't screw up the hook gaps on poppers. I see commercial poppers with small hook gaps. Pains me.
This will be shortest trip in history of BWCA paddling. Monday-Thursday next week. Gear is about ready. Plenty of flies.
