Hopper Kit – 34 Fly Assortment
This is the Large Double Sided Water Proof Box. The front side has 12 hopper’s and the back side has 22. Short description of what is in the box, all the staple hopper/dropper dry fly patterns for fishing during the hopper months. In a nutshell, you get the following in the kit, Fat Albert’s, Western Lady’s, Chernobyl’s, Stimulator’s, Joe and Dave’s Hopper, Turks Tarantula and a few bigger traditional dries and terrestrials on the right side bottom row.
If you ever have questions on a particular pattern or need knowledge of the pattern, or when and how to fish it, never hesitate to give us a call (417-294-0759). We are always here to help!
If you divided $60 into 34 flies it comes to $1.76 a fly plus the box! Pretty hard to find hoppers this cheap at this quality.
This box will come in handy when the hopper fishing gets going in Arkansas. The time this start is usually sometime in July going all the way until October. From all the years fishing this prolific hatch I find these produce trout and big brown’s time and time again. No need to do the guess work, because I already did that for you. All you need to do is find what dropper you would like to drop off the hopper. I usually don’t do this except when the river is running some water, but not a lot. The bigger water I only use the dry as I feel it has been more effective with no dropper. When you’re targeting bigger brown’s that dropper isn’t important and will give you more issues than what it’s worth. Plus the more you “splat” that hopper along the banks the better chances you have getting more strikes. It seems when you use the dropper rig you tend to dead drift a lot more and that’s usually when I drop midges etc in the shallower water because you don’t get those bigger fish in that type of water unless you are in shoals that have more water disturbance. I’m sure some will argue that, but that’s what works for me most the time I’m fishing the White River. I have caught big fish on big hoppers in shallow water, but few and far between that’s for sure. I’m like most people, I would rather be lucky than good any day of the week.
