Dave's Hopper is an acclaimed grasshopper fly pattern, favored for its high buoyancy derived from its deer hair construction. This fly is especially effective during times when terrestrials are prevalent, making it a top choice for anglers looking to capitalize on surface-feeding fish. Its realistic profile and action on the water surface make it irresistible to trout and other freshwater species, offering a prime opportunity for successful fishing in terrestrial-rich environments.

Crafted with high-quality deer hair, Dave's Hopper is built for durability and exceptional buoyancy. The fly's lifelike yellow and brown body, detailed legs, and wing patterns create an enticing visual that attracts fish from a distance. This pattern is particularly effective during the late summer and early fall months when grasshoppers are most active and frequently fall into the water, becoming easy prey for opportunistic fish.

To use Dave's Hopper effectively, fish it as a dry fly. Cast it near the banks, grassy edges, or overhanging vegetation where grasshoppers are likely to fall into the water. Allow the fly to drift naturally with the current, ensuring a drag-free drift to maintain its lifelike appearance. Adding slight twitches can mimic the struggling movements of a real grasshopper, making the fly even more attractive to fish. This pattern is especially productive when fished alone or as part of a dry-dropper rig.
