Blue Water Popper – Black & White

Creator: unknown

Poppers are a must have fly if you are fishing for billfish like marlin or sailfish. They also work on tuna & mahi-mahi as well. They are easy to tie and come in many different color combinations.
The black & white is designed to be a generic baitfish with dark top and light bottom.
For our blue water trips, we tie these up in multiple colors and have popper heads ready to slide on.
