Postby dunner » Sat May 23, 2009 11:44 am

Im looking for a couple of popper flies for my box.
Can anyone recommend a good one or two?
Only ones that have caught fish please?
A pic would be great too!

Have a look at http://www.oceanflies.com

Used them before quite cheap with cheap postage to Ireland,
The Banger works well, had quite a few on those at dawn and dusk :D
