Got the Popper/Dropper rig in the mail this morning……set up my heavier fly rod (7 weight forward on an older 8 foot Berkley Cherrywood Graphite). Couldn’t wait…hitched up the boat and headed to a small lake that has been fairly productive. Used a very plain yellow popper with black feather dressing as my indicator and a sinking bumble bee as the dropper. WHAT A HOOT!! Caught a fish on the dropper 2nd cast, not big but filletable. Several casts later I caught a 9 inch punkinseed on the dropper and a decent bluegill on the popper. I can’t wait to set up a vaiation somewhat lighter for my 4 weight set up. Thanks for a great idea.
