Red Half Hog Hopper


The hopper is similar to a small crane fly, it is very effective when trout are taking hatching midge. It is best tied in orange, ginger, olive, black and claret colours but this red hopper version has to be my all time favourite. It can be fished on a floating line and left static or slowly twitched  across the surface. A number of takes have also been taken subsurface using a variety of retrieve techniques from very slow to very fast.
