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. Grasshopper flies available in sizes: 8, 10, 12, 14.

Review 1 for Schroeder's Hi-Vis Hopper
An International Favourite,
August 19, 2008
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!"
