I am looking in to buying an airbrush system for making crease flies and Poppers( as smallmouth bass seem to be what I have the most time for lately). does any one here have any experience making their own poppers and using airbrush systems to paint them? I was wondering also what brands of airbrushes and marker systems might work best? any help would be great.

I have no experience with them but have been thinking about buying the Copic air brush system for the same reason as you. I’ve been gearing up to tie foam poppers for a while, but then switched gears and learned how to tie deer hair poppers the right way (thanks to a Pat Cohen session at Eldridge Bros.). I’ve seen some really nice airbrushed poppers though- and have a bunch of popper bodies and popper hooks to work with so I’ll probably still go that route at some point.

thats the same system I was looking at. I think i like the the full compressor setup as compared to the air can setup.
