  1. Another simple but effective pattern - Simple Foam Rubber Grasshopper. Used it today and had fun catching a few Bass and Bluegill!
  2. Coming into spring, dry fly season is right around the corner. Up where I live, we get grasshoppers jumping off the banks and into the water pretty early in the season. However most of our hoppers are not too large, and it is tough for some of the smaller creek fish to take a large grasshopper pattern. I wanted to make one small, and this one is quite small. Tied on a size 10 hook, its small enough to fit in a small trouts mouth. Also it mimics the size of the local grasshoppers that the fish are eating on. These hoppers are yellow, tan and brown. So thats the color pattern I am tying them in. Not only is this fly effective, it is very durable. I have yet to have a fly come apart even after a few hard takes from fish. Here is a list of materials I used on this fly. Hook: TMC 100 in size 10 Thread: Veevus 10/0 in tan Abdomen: 2mm tan fly foam Dubbing: Vaca dry fly dubbing in hopper yellow Head: 2mm tan and brown fly foam Wing: Congo hair in medium brown Hot Spot: 2mm yellow fly foam Legs: centipede legs in speckled white Glue: Paint on gorilla glue
