HOT-RED HALF-HOG HOPPER
Hook Size 10-12 Fulling Mill All Purpose Medium Thread Red Rib Fine red wire Body Fluorescent red seal fur First wing tuft Light roe deer hair Dubbing Fluorescent red seal fur Second wing tuft Light roe deer hair Legs Two pairs of cock pheasant tail fibres Hackle Ginger hen, two turns This is a recent addition to my H-H Hopper range. A friend from the south showed me a sedge pattern of his that included the fluorescent red dubbing and which he claimed to be his numero uno dry-fly pattern on Midlands reservoirs. We were on the Lake of Menteith and we had one helluva time using his red sedges on the rainbow trout. Naturally, this variation screamed out to be an addition to my dry-fly box.
