    Default COOPER'S HOPPER - Fly of the week - November 15, 2010


    Everyone loves hopper patterns!*I don't know of a fly fisherman who doesn't carry them during the summer and early fall months. It?s a 'go-to-fly' during those dog days of summer --- even if you don't see them on the water. Crickets, deer-flies, ants --- they all take a back seat to the almighty 'HOPPER' !

    A most excellent hopper pattern. Can't wait to tie some up.
