How to Fish with the Realistic Flying Hot Butt Hopper Fly:
Ideal Conditions: Best used in late summer when grasshoppers are abundant, especially near grassy banks and windy days when these insects are likely to fall into the water.
Casting Technique: Employ a standard overhead cast, aiming close to the banks. This fly excels in a natural drift, mimicking a grasshopper that has just fallen into the water.
Retrieval Method: Use short, intermittent strips to create a slight twitching motion, imitating a struggling grasshopper. Pay attention to the water's surface tension to maintain the fly's natural floating behaviour.
Vary Your Approach: Experiment with different retrieves based on the trout's response. Sometimes a more active retrieve with larger strips and pauses can entice hesitant fish.
Use as Part of a Dropper Rig: For deeper waters, pair the Hot Butt Hopper with a nymph dropper, allowing you to cover multiple water columns and increase your chances of a strike.
