    Default Quick Foam Hopper

    This foam hopper is simple and quick to tie . One can use this as a indicator fly for suspending small nymphs or fish it on it's own.

    The components :
    - Thin Fly Foam
    - Grip 14723 BL
    - Deer Hair
    - Thin Wing
    - Fine rubber
    - 6/0 Fly Master thread



    Use a needle in your vice or the new Renzetti extended body tool to tie the foam body. Insert the hook then into the body , soos n ertie.



    Tie in the Foam Wing. The deer hair must be tied with tips facing towards the hook eye, thus when you fold it back you will get a nice bullet shape deer hair head.



    After you tied the deer hair down you tie the rubber in . Whip finish . Done.



    This fly also work a charm on Sterkies.
