Tying a Foam Hopper - YouTube

A few years ago I discovered this hopper pattern in a friend's fly tying magazine, but I haven't been able to recall its name nor which magazine it was in. Since then, I've tied this fly in numerous color combinations with a variety of different materials. Each iteration of this fly has been very effective, and altogether this general pattern has provided me with numerous hours of fish-catchin' fun. Enjoy!
