I love hopper fishing. Just recently I had an opportunity to fish the one of Michigan's most beautiful rivers of the Upper Peninsula --- the Escanaba. I arrived during the peak of hopper season and a local stirred me toward a secret spot just south of the city of Gwinn. I really nailed them! I stopped counting after twenty fish in just over three hours. I came prepared with about six different hopper patterns (three of each). This was a pattern I had never tried before. This pattern was easy --- three hoppers --- three cast --- three fish, all of which were in the 14" range. This pattern will now find a permanent place in my fly box.
