Big Ass Hopper

Hopper season gets most anglers’ hearts pumping at the thought of a big trout looming up underneath a chunky fly slapped on the surface to get their attention. The need for finesse goes out the door and attention-seeking is what it’s all about.
The Big Ass Hopper draws on many foam hopper variants including the Madam X Hopper that have earned their place in anglers’ summer fly boxes. Drawing on the tan and yellow themes of the commonly observed Yellow-winged locust around our rivers the fly is sure to draw the attention of even the most discerning brown in your favourite hopper water.

More fly information...

Fish the Big Ass Hopper as you would any larger hopper targeting overhung grassy banks, deep runs and back eddies.
We recommend fishing the fly on 4X to 5X to avoid ‘spinning up’ finer tippets.
The fly is tied on a barbless dry fly hook, making it kinder on fish that often engulf a hopper pattern while enjoying excellent hookups.
