The Charlie Boy Hopper is one of the best flies for imitating grasshoppers that have fallen into the water. Many anglers out west started fishing these flies when they first picked up a fly rod. They are easy to see and rarely sink below the surface. A favorite fly for surveying the water and targeting many spots along the river that hold fish. They cast beautifully on all fly rods, big and small. If your fly fishing in the summer, you simply must have some hoppers with you. The Charlie Boy is a great choice for a reliable and effective pattern.
