Dave's Hopper


This pattern is tied on a size 14 hook and imitates a grasshopper. This Dave Whitlock pattern has a head and collar of clipped deer hair, an overwing of lacquered turkey and legs of yellow dyed grizzle hackle. This type of fly is very versatile.  Fish will take as a grasshopper; they will also accept it for a crane fly and even take as an emerging Upwing. Also because of the clipped deer hair head it can be used as a muddler and dragged through the surface film. This pattern is suitable for rivers and lakes from May to October.
