Most likely the innovator who brought the idea of using surface poppers for salmon to Washington, Leland Miyawaki, can regularly be found stalking the saltwater beaches for topwater action. Stogie in hand, Leland has been a wealth of information and doesn't mind sharing. It is a great honor for me to do this SBS of his fly...hopefully I've done it justice. Recipe: Popper Head for Searuns: Rainy's Pee-Wee Pop Popper Head for Coho: Rainy's Mini Me Pop Front Hook: Mustad 3407 #6 Stinger Hook for Searuns: Gamakatsu "Octopus" #6 Stinger Hook for Coho: Gamakatsu "Octopus" #2 Any color 3/0 tying thread Silver "Holographic" Flashabou Krystal Flash "Mixed Colors" Grizzly or Pink Hackle White Icelandic Sheep Light Olive Icelandic Sheep (eliminate when tying pink) Peacock Herl Tighten the Mustad hook into your vise. This first hook is only used to hold the material as you will cut the hook off above the bend when finished. Dress half the hook. Be sure not to go any further back past this reference point. De-barb the Gamakatsu. Double over a 6" piece of Fireline, Beadalon, or 25lb. Maxima and insert both tag ends through the back of the eye, drop the loop down over the bend and pull forward until the loop tightens behind the eye. This is the business end of the fly and should be about 1-1/2 to 2 inches long depending on the size of fly. Tie the Stinger to the top of the shank with the trailer hook facing up and feed the Fireline thru the hook eye. Double the line back over and lash down the sides of the shank. Apply some superglue over the wraps. This is essential if you don't feed your line thru the hook eye. Advance your thread halfway to the eye. Select two grizzly hackles and make sure you pair them with the concave sides facing each other. Tie in the two grizzly hackles. They should be about 1/4" longer than the trailer hook. Double over two strands of Flashabou. Tie the Flashabou in and cut the back so they are uneven. Do the same with two strands of Krystal Flash.
