Co-developed with Capt. Gary Dubiel
Renowned fly fishing guide Captain Gary Dubiel has developed the perfect method for catching giant fish on the fly. The Pop-N-Fly is a lightweight foam cylinder with an embedded articulated shank, enabling it to be attached between your leader and tippet. The foam suspends your fly below the surface and when stripped it pops and splashes, causing a commotion on the surface which sounds like other fish feeding on bait, enticing the fish you're targeting to strike an easy meal.
While originally designed for redfish, the Pop-N-Fly has proved to be effective for numerous other saltwater and freshwater species, including speckled trout, false albacore, cobia, striped bass, smallmouth bass, lake trout, and more.
Gary recommends using a streamer, such as the Fish-Skull® Masked Minnow™ or Crafty Deceiver™, with the Pop-N-Fly.

Simple to cast
The Pop-N-Fly is lightweight and aerodynamic, making it easy to cast with a fly rod (Small: 7-9 wt; Large: 9-12 wt.).
Easy to see
The bright orange (saltwater) and bright chartreuse (freshwater) stand out in the water.
Attach your Pop-N-Fly between the leader and tippet. The tippet should typically be about 20 inches (51 cm) long to which your fly (a lightweight baitfish pattern) is attached. Cast out, then use short, hard strips to work your Pop-N-Fly and create attention-grabbing commotion. This technique draws predatory fish toward the surface where they see your fly suspended helplessly below for an easy meal. It's an invitation they can't refuse.
