Betts Frugal Frog Flies
these poppers are an excellent choice for any panfish. throw this in a slow moving stream for white bass, suspended crappie, even smallmouth, or throw this in a farm pond for the biggest bluegill you have ever caught!, or even throw this over a weed bed for largemouth! for farm ponds and lakes, the frog pattern is unbeatable, for streams, i like to stick with charteuse!

Betts Frugal Frog
#9 frogs in both colors are the only flies I use in the middle Tennessee river that I live on. Water depth is from 10 to 40 feet, yet these flies consistently produce from March through late fall for smallmouth(of all sizes) and bluegill. I use only a 4 weight 8 1/2 ft. rod and get great control and action. I now leave my other dry and wet flies at home.

I have caught many Bass and bluegill with Betts poppers.
Days when fish have quit biting, I can always pick up my fly rod and Betts poppers. --- Catch up to 50 bass and panfish a day. When there was no other bite to be had.
Excellent poppers. Chartreuse colors, small size. Great pond action.

Bass Pro has a big selection, and they're awesome farm pond poppers.

Sweet Flies By Betts
I have both of these, the size 4 in green, and the size 10 in yellow. They are great, and I caught my first fish on the fly on them. I spin fish a lot, and these foam/cork poppers are just as good as the plastic ones that I fish with. I have caught alot of fish on these, and they are perfectly weighted, so it doesn't take long to get these flies far out there on my 5 weight rod.
