The Charlie Boy Hopper in Black was created by one of the most revered fly tiers in the world, Charlie Craven. Charlie set out to create a fishing fly that imitated a grasshopper that will float better than any other pattern previous. Since then, it has set a new standard for fishing flies that won’t get water-logged. This trout fly will work in big tailwaters and small creeks and is an essential pattern to have for summer fly fishing. They cast beautifully on a fly rod and are easy to create a dead drift. As far as hopper flies go, the Charlie Boy is often all you need. Be sure to fill your box with all the sizes and colors.
