CP's DH Hopper Revised
CP's Revised DH Hopper. One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that I cut the foam body with a River Road Creation Hopper body Cutter. For the size 10 Hook I use the second to the smallest cutter.

Dave's Hopper

The Dave's Hopper is a favorite "go to" Hopper Pattern for many fly fishers. The high floating properties and life like appearance of the Dave's Hopper, make it one of the best Grasshopper Patterns ever developed. The Dave's Hopper was created by fly tying mastermind Dave Whitlock. The Dave's Hopper is made to be fished in the heat of summer and flopped down near the bank (where hoppers tend to fall or be blown into the river). The Dave's Hopper is a great indicator for the "Hopper Dropper" technique and is extremely deadly on hungry trout.

Letort Hopper

The Letort Hopper is a great small micro Hopper pattern.
The Letort Hopper is made to imitate the smaller hoppers in the grass and fool the pickiest of trout. The Letort Hopper is a killer little hopper on spring creeks, sloughs and slow water areas. The Letort Hopper sits flush to the water and has a slim realistic profile. The Letort Hopper is also simple to tie!
Making it a great Hopper pattern for the new fly tier to tackle!
