Morrish Hopper

The Morrish Hopper is a ultra realistic hopper pattern developed by fly tying mastermind Ken Morrish. The Morrish Hopper combines the perfect grasshopper profile with real world fishability. The Morrish Hopper not only looks like a hopper....but it really does fish with the best of them! The Morrish Hopper can be tied in several color variations, including the realistic colors Tan and Olive. But do not underestimate some of the "wild" colors, such as Pink, Purple and Chartreuse. These colors catch just as many fish as the Natural colors. is all about the preparation of this fly. Once you have the bodies and legs prepped, the rest is a breeze!

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
