The Sugar Pop is designed and tied by April!


I prefer to tie most of my flies with a trailing hook. This allows me to replace any dull or broken off points by simply switching the hook, rather than disposing of the fly entirely.

  1. Snip off four or five inches of thin wire, thick monofilament, running line or something of the sort.
  2. Folding it in half, lay each end on either side of the shank and wrap the thread over the wire, winding it upwards. The tie in point should be where the hook shank begins to curve.
  3. Fold the wire back over and secure it with multiple downward winding wraps of thread.
  4. Clip any tail ends.
  5. After completion of the fly, use wire cutters to cut the main hook near the bend in the shaft.
