Realistic Hopper (Grasshopper)

Posted in Dry Fly

Some streams have large concentrations of grasshoppers. Trout sometimes hold near the banks waiting of one getting blown into the water. 

These streams are almost always in fields or open meadows with a lot of weeds or grass. 

Streams that are not located in such prime grasshopper habitat have some hoppers. Even streams that are located in forest.

Our hopper is virtually unsinkable, super lightweight and very durable, also great for a "hopper/dropper" rig.

A super realistic foam pattern that makes a big splash when it hits the water like a real!
