IF you have wandered by the shop on the odd Sunday you might have met Paul Port: fisheries biologist, father, big fish junky and bad ass fly tyer.
Paul has a real gig, warmwater biologist for AGFC but he helps out on big events and the occassional Sunday shift, for quite a few years now, and we have long admired his bugs, so we are happy to present his Popping Frog as part of our White River video series.
“Cast the fly at the bank targeting structure for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and sunfish. After the fly hits the water, give it a long pause, then pop it back to you using short jerks and long pauses in between. Be ready for some explosive hits:” Paul Port
