We think Zazzy Pops are a big deal, and so does everyone who sees them in person! The photos on this site (and others) really don’t do them justice. It’s kinda hard to capture all that Zazzy! Actually, it’s the glossy finish that makes ’em hard to photograph.
Ok, so they’re shiny. Big deal, right? Lots of poppers are shiny. Well yeah, lots of poppers are shiny. Green ones, blue ones, green and red ones, yellow and green ones……but have you ever seen a shiny red-blue-green-yellow-orange-black-white-pink-teal popper with a tie-dye bear??!?!! We have!
“Hey, if you don’t mind – let me get some feedback from you guys…”
That’s what I told a couple who stopped by our yard sale last weekend. I was scraping decals off the “Trout Truck” in order to make room for a new Zazzy Pop logo that’ll take up most of the window and I overheard the lady ask my wife if we had any fly fishing gear for sale.
Two minutes later I was showing them the latest batch of Zazzy Pops. They husband looked them over and seemed generally impressed. He told me how he’d tried to make poppers with markers and fingernail polish but the colors all ran together when the epoxy was applied. I assured him that I’d “been there, done that” and that there was a special base coat on these that allowed us to get all the details we wanted to stay where we wanted them to stay. He picked up a saltwater version and held it up in the sunlight.
“Those look really nice.” said Mr. Saltwater Fly Guy.
“Take that one with you” said I.
“Oh no, we have to pay you for it.” said Mr. Salty.
“No, I insist – take one and let me know how it works for you.”
But he insisted right back and gave us some money for the popper. Handing him a business card, I could only hope that someday he’ll send back a report or (even better) a fish picture with something from the sea that bit our ZazzyPop. When and if that happens, we’ll be sure to let you know right here.
In other Zazzy Newz, our largest order to date: 50 + poppers is going to ship out this week! Thank you to everyone for all the requests for Zazzyness. Between tying some for myself and the orders we’ve got coming in right now, it’s taking about 14 days for turnaround – but we know you’ll think it’s worth it. After all, they’re just so…(wait for it)….Zazzy! 🙂
