I have at least 10 of the smallest Hula Poppers that Arbogast makes.The skirts are all unravelling and coming apart.I have no idea of where to find the small replacement skirts...anyone know of a source?
To Fish or Not to fish...What a stupid Question

When Fishing,I practice C.P.R. (Catch, Photograph and Release)

Dinks are Dinks...Be easy on em, they cant help it

Try H&H website and look under skirt. You might have to modify a little bit(Cut length and glue on),but they look like a really good fit.I'm going to have to pull out my hula popper and an H&H lure and see if that skirt would work on it.



I checked it and it looks like a perfect fit.Wouldn't be surprised if they are the same skirt company.

The magic lure in your tackle box is the lure you have the most confidence in.

Someone gave me one of those and it had no skirt so I took a spinnerbait skirt and glued it on and it works great.

i agree with dulouz a spinner bait skirt works a lot better than the hula popper skirt and it pans out a lot better in the water
What could be better then having your Fishing Rod/Tackle and a camera and a day on the lake?

Probably can still find older rubber skirts on E-Bay.
I would try to adapt a silicone skirt somehow. Trim it if it's too big.
Life is too short. Laughing and fishing more will extend your stay on this thing we call earth.

Barlow's also has some small (2-1/2", IIRC) skirts that could work. Maybe a little trimming required?

There are no magic lures and the fish don't care how much you paid for your gear.
