Frugal Fishing Flies

Who knew that cheap flip flops would have an alternative use?

Almost everyone probably keeps a spare pair of cheap flip flops around. I consider them fairly disposable as they tend to break or fall apart after the first year.

Rather than throw out that old pair, reuse them to add to your tackle box.

After you form the head just feed it onto a hook and add some character. Glue on googly eyes and legs. I like having hair or feathers on the end to add more action. Painting is optional.

Seems pretty simple and fun. So next year instead of just throwing out you old sandals reuse them then find some panfish beds. Poppers are some of the most versatile flies in fly fishing. Bass, panfish, and even pike will attack a popper. This is also a great way to get your feet wet into the realm of fly tying.
