Pattern Description
One of the most popular hopper patterns around, Schroeder's para hopper is a highly visible, buoyant fly that is also very easy to find on the water. There are a few tricks in the tying process and it can get a bit complicated with all the parts, but I think you'll find it to become one of your favorites.
