what i also do mail is make a fly the one you illustrated, but behind the hackle i tie a piece of foam. cut like a long skinny triangle, then wrap the hackle and the foam to the back of the hook, then bring the wrap back toward the head just infront of the hackle. then i cut off the top of the hackle and fold the foam over and tie it off. works great when the beetles first pop out in april
ohhh, did i come across a good un for poppers, you take the cheap colored flip flops from wal-mart..... 4 for a dollar, and cut wedges out of the material, then you trim them up and glue them to a hook. add some hackle and a tail behind it, and you have a foam popper! it was in one of the previous magazines of FFG.
