Bass Bug 2.0 Now Available!

This Is the Toughest, Most Durable Popper on the Planet.

Say Goodbye to Fragile Poppers With Hard Epoxy Finishes and Hello to the Indestructible 'Soft-Bite' Bass Bug.

We're excited to now be shipping the new and improved "soft bite" version of the Double Barrel Bass Bug, which won Best Of Show – Fly Freshwater at the 2017 International Fly Tackle Dealer Show in Orlando, Florida.

The most important thing we've done to take the Bass Bug to the next level is completely eliminating hard epoxy in exchange for a flexible epoxy that can take strike after strike without breaking or cracking. See the video above to see a test of a Bass Bug vs. a hammer (and try it yourself at home if you'd like)!

Simply put, the Bass Bug is a popper meant to catch fish over and over and over again as long as you don't break off on a monster fish and lose your fly.
