Parachute Hopper

Matt Gutzmann at the Great Falls Big R Fly Shop is behind the vise tying a parachute hopper. Hopper fishing heats up in the late summer and fall when there are a lot of these guys being blown into the water by the warm winds. Fish key in on these big terestrials due to the abundance of calories in one big hopper. Try fishing this highly visible parachute hopper anytime you see them in the grasses near rivers.
