Hi Vis Hopper or Bite Indicator
These are a "must have" in my fly box. As I have come to expect from Allen Fly Fishing a quality fly tying but in addition to representing a Hopper they are an excellent bite indicator when suspending nymphs/bugs. Which is great, because here in the UK many fisheries and international competitions prohibit the use of bite indicators. Upstream I place the Hopper on the first dropper and weighed nymphs on the second dropper and point. Where as down stream in shallow stretches the Hopper is fished on the point with the second dropper longer than the first - often termed "washing line" by still water anglers. I guess the Hoppers are larger States side as sizes 10/14 would be a very useful addition for European anglers.
