In June, 2008, Gene and Patty Gramzow aboard the boat Siria were fifty yards from Patty Barnes and I aboard the boat La Nonconforma. All of us were were catching lots of dorado. The fish averaged 18-25 pounds and were ferocious. Gene was using a popper and seemed to be catching a few more fish than the rest of us. I yelled over and asked what he was using. He said, "A Bubble Head, it has a hole in the face and spurts water out of the top of the head. Come on over and I'll give you one!" During the next two days, I wore the fly out catching dorado after dorado.

Rainey's Bubble Head Popper Fly, Blue/Silver
Bubble Heads are true works of art. You will marvel at the craftsmanship used in the construction of these flies. The pearlescent scale pattern paint is covered with a flawless coat of crystal clear epoxy. We have seen nothing else to compare. They also have proven to be very durable.  One 3/0 bubble Head landed over thirty dorado for me.
The Blue/Silver Bubble Head is in a standard fly flying fish flying fish color. Blue/Silver is also good for mimicking certain kinds of mackerel and herring. These forage fish are often most active in the fading light of evening, especially along the edges of Sargasso paddies or kelp beds.

Rainey's Bubble Head Popper Fly, Olive/Silver
Olive/Silver has been the best color combination during morning and mid-day dorado quests in the Sea of Cortez. This is especially true when you are chumming up dorado that are hanging around patches of Sargasso. On the average, no other fly beats a Mark's Sardina in this situation. But, there are times during the brightest part of the day when a bubble Head has an edge. Often dorado will attack it as soon as it hits the water or on the first strip. During these situations I use the same Rio Outbound Intermediate line that I use with the Sardinas. Stripping the instant the fly hits the water often gives best results.
