The Story

Hopper dry fly fishing is about as good as it gets in the late summer and fall when the grasshoppers are plentiful and the warm winds are blowing them out of the grass into the streams. Fish key in on these big dry flies due to the abundance of calories in one big hopper. On open grassland rivers in the West, there is no better time of the year. Try fishing this very visible parachute dry fly pattern anytime you see hoppers in the grass near rivers. In colors olive, tan.

Sizes: 8, 10, 12, 14.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome early season/low water hopper. When the rhododendron starts blooming on the bank the insects start becoming more abundant. I love throwing this hopper as a single fly or as a lead fly with a dropper. Especially an ant type pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well tied hopper pattern Using as hopper dropper. I think it looks like a real hopper and fish think so too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fly The patterns on these guys are perfect. I have caught more fish with these then any other fly in my kit. They are pretty durable as well. It is able to stand up to the abuse of 10+ fish. The wings are chewed up now but and I am still able to use it.
