Another simple but effective pattern - Simple Foam Rubber Grasshopper.
Used it today and had fun catching a few Bass and Bluegill!

With all the green stuff clobbering the ponds at Bethany Lakes, decided to tie some Foam Grasshoppers for this evening's round of fishing. Good thing, caught a number of Bass and Bluegill.
