If there is one hopper/stonefly pattern I have turned to in the last two years it is definitely this fly. I have been tweaking this fly for several seasons and finally have it where I want it. Its my number 1 brook trout fly in moving water and usually the one fly I turn to in a hopper/dropper setup. In fact, this year I finalized this design I managed to land two of the biggest trout of my career and both of them were on this pattern. It doesn’t fish well all of the time but when the fish have it in their mind to eat big dries I will certainly turn to this the majority of the time.
