Schroeder's Hi-Vis Hopper

Ed Schroeder is a great fly tier, but he has terrible eyesight. That's a good thing, because he creates some of the best high visibility grasshopper flies there are. This great grasshopper pattern is not only a good imitation, you can see it in tough water and light conditions. Color, Natural. Sizes: 8, 10, 12, 14.

Great strike indicator,
October 19, 2015
By: RockyMountainHigh

"I used the Hi Vis Hopper as a strike indicator with a bead-headed fly dropped off of it. It worked well both as a strike indicator when the bead head was being taken below, and as an attractive lure for top water strikes. I was able to catch trout that were surface feeding as well as below. Highly recommend."

Great hopper,

"One of the best terestrials out there. Good presentation that can be seen on those longer casts. It gets those trout out from the grassy banks and in to the net."

An International Favourite,
August 19, 2008
By: RedTag
from Canberra, Australia
"I live in Australia, and for us, Christmas time means sticky heat and the chainsaw-esque raoring of cicada's. with the arrival of cicada's comes also its much smaller mutch quieter cousin, the hopper.
We get allot of different hopper's around where I fish (The Kosciuszko National Park for geography freaks) including the wingless (our smallest, size12 and less) and snowy hopper and largest (up to size six). This fly kills for both. I caught my two first dry fly browns on this fly, andfor me this has consistantly outfished even the classics (Dave's Hopper ect...), There are few better flies I know, buy it, tie it, steal it, just get some in your box!
