The Copper John from Colorado’s John Barr is the biggest selling trout fly of all time. There’s a reason for it. If you fly fish trout with a nymph the Copper John is a must. Fish it alone with a strike indicator or as a hopper dropper combination fly fished below a hopper or cricket fly.

The Copper John has added weight due to fly tying it with copper wire, a bead and an epoxy wingcase.
