Stealth Bomber Foam Popper/Slider Cutter Set

Here is a Stealth Bomber cutter set distributed by River Road Creations.  If you have not fished Kent Edmund's Stealth Bomber you need to start cutting foam right away.  The Stealth Bomber is a great bass and panfish fact, it is one of my favorites of all time.

This is a very durable, easy to tie pattern that is also very economical.  All of that stuff aside, this fly is a blast to tie.  Use Ward Beans barber pole leg technique and you will have very attractive and VERY FISHY flies! 

Ward's Barber Pole Leg Technique - Outstanding!

Here is my version of Kent's Stealth Bomber.  I didn't use these cutters, but it would have been nice to have them.  I called our version the Hopper Popper.

Kent really has a winner with the Stealth Bomber.  Here is a copy of the tying instructions with the template for the body.  The cutters make this pattern a breeze to put together though.  If the cutters are out of your price range here is a link to the original pattern.
