Recently, we did a custom paint job for someone. They wanted us to reproduce the Heddon Torpedo paint scheme on a pencil popper. We, of course, jumped at the chance to do this. What a great idea and a neat challenge. For those of us that fished with conventional tackle before making our way to fly fishing, I am sure we all used or at least know of the Heddon Torpedo. I had a few myself in various sizes. Anyways, our customer wanted us to paint the pencil popper just like the Heddon Torpedo. While we could not reproduce all the spots since there wasn't enough room on the body given the size, I think we did a pretty good job. I like this fly a lot. I can't wait to see what he catches with it.
