Gearing up for BWCA

The first step is to read up a bit in an effort to improve my smallmouth fly arsenal. I have done that.... So last night I fixed foam heads to bug hooks, and tonight I dressed them out to complete six poppers. Three are cylinder foam and three are "blockheads" that I tried to shape with scissors. These flies will make quite a ruckus as they rip through the water - very cool indeed. They are some mean, bad, dominating poppers. They kind of remind me of that scene in Pulp Fiction when Samuel L tells the robber to look in the bag of wallets for "the one that says Bad MF on it." These are some pretty badass flies, and I can picture being in the canoe with my dad and saying "hand me that popper that has Bad MF written on it."
