The "Bluewater Mirage" tube popper is a killer popper for heavy inshore and light offshore fly rodding. This is a top pattern for GT's - Giant Trevally, in locations like Christmas Island, the Seychelles, and elsewhere. Other heavy-hitters like tunas, sailfish, mahi, and other medium-sized offshore fish will crush this bright fly. Inshore, this popper will clobber stripers in the rips and slammer sized bluefish, not to mention bruisers like Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, and more. This fly is so bright, it has to be seen to be believed - click Here for an alternate view of the Opal color. The "Opal" color is shown in the photo above - see below for photos of the Green Machine and Think Pink colors. Please note that like most tube flies, hooks are not included with these poppers, as many anglers rig their own. Available separately are trailer hooks pre-rigged on heavy monofilament; see below for available configurations & specs. Supply is limited.
