Oh brother! I had to go and open my mouth... :shock: :? :lol:

Sure, I will try to do a tutorial in a couple weeks. I got stuff going on this weekend.

4thru8weights - Those are gorgeous wet flies. They look like they would be a blast to fish.

Excellent wet hopper 4-8, and Ray - one of my favorites of your patterns.

I use two hopper patterns. One is simple a soft hackle with knotted pheasant tail legs out from behind the hackle and the other is this Dyret Hopper variation.

Carl - I have one of your hoppers sitting on top of my tying desk, already chewed and fish-approved. I keep it, as a reminder of a good day I had on the water, fishing your fly. Damn good fly!
