I tie all the hooks myself. Thanks for the complements.

Thanks! I make them from red cedar and the bigger ones like these are Atlantic White Cedar. This is what is available locally and I love working with it. I have not really tested these on big blue fin. I have been tying flies and building lures my whole life. Fly tying was my first passion, hence the tail hooks. I have gotten quite obsessed with building lures in the past five years. I started make poppers and spooks as a kid for Large mouth bass fishing. I got in to making Lures for the striper crowd in the past few years. I Just started making poppers earlier this year for tuna. I have only built about 50 tuna poppers and maybe half have been distributed. I haven't heard of any big blue fin caught yet, just yft and black fin and aj's. My budget is tight this year I don't know how much I will get out this winter for them.
