The Story

Ed Shenk of Pennsylvania originated this grasshopper fly pattern along with the Letort Cricket back in 1960. Both have been mainstays of terrestrial boxes ever since. Anytime you see a grasshopper on the water, this fly pattern is a good bet. Color, Tan.

Sizes: 8, 10, 12.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good looking fly Got this fly , never used this type. More foam type flies when i use Hoppers , looks like it will float good and Its an Old school fly with history of Catches, with that said , You can not go wrong .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! In The summer in southeastern PA I like to fish for warm water species because the holdover trout are not very hearty. I heard a segment on Tom Rosenbauer‘s podcast about fishing with grasshoppers and not being afraid to drown them, so I used a small split shot about 10 inches from the grasshopper and discovered several species of bass that I did not know where in our small river. I caught smalleys and two large mouth and several rock bass. They loved the sinking grasshopper. Still have to see if they work for Trout
