Dave’s Hopper Fly
The Dave’s Hopper fly pattern is credited to an Oklahoma fly tyer, Dave Whitlock who created it in the 1950’s. It is designed to imitate an adult short-horned grasshopper and other similar species. Grasshoppers frequent grassy areas next to rivers and lakes and are generally considered weak flyers. As such, in windy conditions or when trying to cross bodies of water, they often end up in the water and to the waiting mouths of the fish.
It is considered a dry fly terrestrial pattern designed to float and imitate a grasshopper that has just fallen into the water. They have proved to be a very effective summer time and fall pattern for bass, trout and panfish anywhere grasshoppers can be found.
