This is exactly what I needed today, a couple of days after an Arctic blast huffed and puffed and left my streets and icy mess. We’re months away from “hopper time,” but a guy can dream, right?
I love fly fishing with fat, foam hoppers. They float high and bring tremendous strikes from happy trout. Outside of maybe a bass or a pike nailing a popper or a gurgler, the hopper take is perhaps the signature fly-fishing experience.
Take a break from the ice and snow and look forward to warmer days. And maybe get started at the vise, huh?
