Pink Pookie Hopper

The Pink Pookie is a hopper pattern developed by Dean Reiner in Montana. The Pink Pookie imitates a grasshopper and the fish really go crazy for it! The Pink body is very different than many other hopper patterns out there. But don't be fooled by the bright appearance, this pattern really fishes!! The Pink Pookie is usually tied in sizes #06 and #08, but larger and smaller versions can be tied. The best color is...of course...Pink. But many other anglers tie them in Tan, Yellow and Olive. A great terrestrial pattern to have in your summer Montana Hopper box!!

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.
