The story is that, last summer, we had a ball popping kings at Long Reef using Roosta poppers:
Then we found a new buzz – chasing small mahi at FAD 19 (off Sydney) using mini poppers.
Here’s 60 seconds of a typical session with our $95 light combo:
The go is, three kilo line, and small bullet shaped poppers for distance casting:
But when I went to buy some for this season Arafura Tackle told me this one – the Kingfisher Poppet – was discontinued. So we ordered our own, with one important change – matte black colour, all over:
The idea being, maximum contrast. A client visited to pick some up and told me why he was so keen on them. Most poppers have a silver belly, and he reckons that makes them way more difficult for the fish to see. ‘If you were trying to catch a cricket ball, with the sun in your eyes, what colour would you want it to be? Silver, or black?’ Good analogy. These are light, ideal for use on 3 or 6 kilo tackle:
Kings and mahi so much fun, on light tackle:
Pricing is 4 matte black poppers, fitted with Owner trebles, for $45 including delivery in Australia.
This season (2015) shaping up to be just as good as last year and of course this size mahi delicious, on the plate:
Try an order? You won’t regret it.
