Flymen Surface Seducer Popper Hooks
Flymen Surface Seducer Popper Hooks help you tie poppers, sliders, gurglers, divers, and other foam flies to target species such as bass and panfish.
Surface Seducer® Popper Hooks are quality, specialist hooks sized to match the new Double Barrel popper body range, but are versatile and standardized so you can use them with other foam bodies and products available on the market.
The kinked shank of Surface Seducer Popper hooks strengthens fly by reducing twisting inside the foam fly body.
The wide hook gap helps with hook-up rates by creating the needed separation from the fly's body.
Flymen Popper Hooks are chemically sharpened and have a micro barb for swift and sturdy hook sets.
How to use:
Mounting the Double Barrel on a hook or Articulated Shank
Select a bodkin or heated needle of roughly the same diameter as the hook or shank.
Insert your bodkin from the tail socket and slowly push it through the foam body until it comes out the cup. Make sure it comes out in the correct position, which is slightly above and just past the bottom lip.
Put the hook or Articulated Shank in your fly tying vise and cover the shank with thick, coarse thread wraps in a crisscross fashion. This is important for gripping the foam inside the popper body to prevent twisting.
Put a liberal amount of clear-drying Super Glue Gel on the hook shank.
Slowly but firmly mount the foam fly body onto the hook. Position as desired and leave for a minute or two to dry. Take out of vise and repeat with your next foam fly body and hook.
Note: Although it is Super Glue, it is suggested to leave your mounted hooks for an hour or two before working further on them. It sometimes takes time inside the foam for the glue to set properly.
