About the Claret Hackled Hopper Trout Fly
The Hopper will fish deep in the surface film, often hanging by Surface Tension right underneath it, and this is exactly where you want them.
Not many splashy takes with these flies, just nice confident slurps from Brown Trout.
Count to three before striking, and you are well and truly in!
Fishing the Hopper requires a leap of faith for most fly fishers
The trick to move the fly slowly when beginning to recast.
So instead of ripping the flies off the water as too many anglers do, incorporate a slow and steady lift before applying the power into the back cast.
This Drags the flies across the surface, producing that lovely wake that active fish find so enthralling.
