This pattern came about from a good friend of mine wanting a small hopper pattern. Up in south park there as an abundance of tiny hoppers in the grass along the creeks and rivers. The DH Hopper has been around for a while and has had many versions. Enjoy

Playing around at the vise today tried a different hook on my "D" rib golden stone nymph. I have seen a few stones tied a scud hook, so I thought I would give it a try. I like the looks of the fly on the current hook that I use but my current hook is a little week. First needed to figure out what size scud hook compared to the size of hook was comparable to the hook I was tying on. Here are a few pictures of the results. My first impression is I like what I see. Going to try to get out later this week and give them a try and see if the fish agree.

Found a slick new way to store all of the different beads that I have. The tray is from a company called Bead Storage Solutions. Here are a few pictures of what it looks like filled up. It also has a clear plastic lid the covers the tray and locks into place. Here is a link to the web site to purchase them.

Just recently came up with a way to short videos from the tiers point of view. I did post a new video for the DH Hopper revised just recently and that was shot from the tiers point of view. I don't know if it makes a difference but I think it will be helpful to the beginning fly tier. I did get a couple requests to see my set up for shooting videos from the tiers point of view. Here are a few pictures showing my set up. Bought a inexpensive spotting scope mount for a car window and then made a wood stand to mount it too. I'm setting the stand on my key board tray and using a small spring to hold it to the tray. It is actually fairly easing to work around. Please let me know if you have questions
