The Mimic Hopper is designed as a lower profile, life-like hopper fly pattern that will bring up trout tight against the banks when big gnarly hoppers won't work.
Not all hoppers are designed to carry the weight of a bead headed nymph behind them. Some hoppers are built to just do a great job of imitating a hopper that has landed in the water.
These flies ride low and have lots of movement as the hopper works to stay afloat in the water. The Mimic Hopper is a first choice for when fish are tight to the bank sipping hoppers and your standard mule dry just won’t get them to rise.
Tie on the Mimic Hopper and free yourself from the nymphs.
