Dave’s Hopper

$2.50

This fly was created by Dave Whitlock in the 1950’s while he was trying to improve upon Joe’s Hopper, which was one of the only commercial grasshopper imitations at that time. Dave noticed that the biggest problem with Joe’s Hopper was its inability to float for long periods of time, in addition to its tendency to twist the leader.  His good friend and fly fishing legend Joe Brooks suggested that he fish a muddler minnow instead, which gave Dave the idea to combine the best of both worlds and Dave’s Hopper was the end result.  Year after year, Dave’s hopper continues to produce quality fish the world over, and has probably accounted for more fish than any other grasshopper imitation ever produced.
