Wilson's Hula Diver

Remember Heddon's great Hula Popper? We all had them in our youth. Well, this is the fly fishing version and if it is half as effective as the old Hula Popper, the bass will be all over this pattern. Pushes a lot of water. Dips under on retrieve and pops back to the surface. In red/green.In size: 1, 4.

Good Bass Fly,

"Caught my first bass on the fly with this one. He killed it and took the whole fly. This fly is definitely a keeper."

Watch out for water lillies,
March 10, 2012
By: Woodturtle
from Warwick, MA
"Certainly the most hideous fly I've ever contemplated tying a tippet to--I shudder to think what my trout-centric friends will say if they see it. In other words, just the sort of thing a largemouth will get really excited about. The one major flaw, and it seems very major for bass, is the lack of a weedguard. I may just leave my paddle at home--I'll be pulling myself all over the pond by the lily stems."

Big Bass Killa,
January 3, 2012
By: Riverstalker
"Buy this one in the smaller sizes unless you're using at least a beefy 8 wt. as it's kind of a load, but it's a great choice for both smallies and largemouths...and even pike. Would be better with a mono weedguard so launch accordingly..."

"Looks good but would be more usable with a weed guard. Waiting for spring to give it a try."
