Walt Cary’s Poppers

Walt Cary’s Poppers

Walt Cary has been making popping bugs for over 60 years  Walt’s poppers are renowned for their unique hackles and meticulously prepared cork bodies.  His 10 step painting and finishing process produces a durable and effective popping bug.  Walt’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.

Walt Cary’s “Clean UP” Assortment.

Walt Cary is limiting his production. While “cleaning up” his fly tying workshop he found a variety of hook size #6 poppers.  This “clean up” assortment contains 9 poppers of various designs, all hook size #6, for only $25.00.  This is a one time event sale. When we sell out, that’s the end of these assortments.  NOTE: Not all of the assortments are exactly like the photo.
