    I have used this Popper all over Pa. and I have to say this popper is my go to fly for smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing when it comes to top water. Its no secret that when fishing this popper that it will catch you fish and better big fish.

    Topwater bass bug that is fun fish. Cast it out, let it sit, and strip it back with short, fast strips with pauses in between.

    I bought the Sneaky Pete, the Peeper Popper and the Bluegill Bug for my husband. He was very pleased and now has no excuse for not catching me some bluegill. That's good eats.

    petes problem - 5/28/2014

    The biggest and only problem i have had with this bait is the need to buy more! I have been fishing with the sneaky pete for a few years now and after a good day of fishing one of these flys will be completely destroyed just from the shear amount of strikes it generates. This is my goto for inland waters and anything from bluegill to crappie to bass and more!!

    Very Good Popper - 4/21/2014

    I used the sneaky pete on a lake where the rock bass would pretty much hit anything. However, the popper still worked extremely well and was the first fly I ever fished with, giving me a nice introduction into warmwater fly fishing. Two thumbs up!

    LOOKS nice - 6/11/2013
    By: from Columbus, OH

    I've used sneaky petes' for years from several makers, and have consistant sucess with them. I bought a few from the local Orvis store recently in a couple different sizes and have to say they are the best looking petes' I've owned. Problem is they are just too heavy, tied on too heavy a hook. They float so low in the water that you can't see them, the nose barely breaks the surface. I plan to return them to Orvis.
