Rainy’s Grand Hopper

This is one of the simplest hopper patterns to tie, and in my opinion works just as well as the ones tied with deer hair or hackle feathers. The one downside is that there’s no high-vis foam or yarn on top, so if you’re casting really far, or in super riffly water, this won’t be as easy to spot as some other variations. You can always modify this by adding a bit of orange foam, or white poly yarn on top to make it easy to spot.

(For the foam, you’ll layer two pieces of 3mm foam on either side of the hook.)
