Walt Cary's Poppers

Walt Cary started making popping bugs for over 60 years ago. Regrettably Walt passed away in 2024. Walt’s Poppers are now made by the Solitude Fly Company. Walt’s poppers are renowned for their unique hackles and meticulously prepared cork bodies. The corks are sanded to insure a smooth finish.  This begins a ten step painting and finishing process that produces a durable and effective popping bug.  Walt Cary’s Fire Tiger Fly appeared on the front cover of the Autumn 2011 issue of Fly Tyer magazine.   For an interesting article about Walt Cary, send me an email and ask for a copy of, “50 Years of Popping Bugs”, by Beau Beasley.  This article appeared in the Autumn 2011 issue of Fly Tyer magazine.
