Hopper Fly
« on: 08/31/16 09:13 UTC »
It's been a while since I've posted, I've gotten pretty busy with school and such. Anyway, I figured I'd share what I've been tying up recently.
Hopper Side view. I haven't gotten the chance to try them out yet, but I think they should catch something.

I like the curved caddis hooks for hoppers. I can't get this one to stay upside down even if I try because of how the hook sits, plus there is still plenty of hook gap.
