I have been tying up some pink mini-hoppers for the TN and WY Casting for Recovery programs, more as a novelty item. I was browsing the TN CFR website and spotted a gal wearing a CFR hat and she had a pink beetle pinned to her hat, so that gave me the idea to tie up some hoppers.

I would never think of fishing with pink hoppers, but I remember Eric Beebe from Bighornflies telling me a couple years back that the fly to have on the Bighorn river was a pink hopper. He said all the fly shops in the area couldn't keep them in the bins, they were going like hotcakes at one of those free breakfast events.

Flytire: I really like the way those green caddis turned out using all the different materials, especially the uni-stretch and UV resin versions.

WT: Those soft hackles look awesome!

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

If imitation is a form of flattery, decided to tie some sparse dabblers and they are slowly improving I hope. Variant of some black and silver dabblers put up on the UK flyfishing site by one of the Scratchier inmates. Couldn't tie dabblers at all until Shuck Raider introduced me to the video of the Red Arsed dabbler, which was how I met my instructor.

Tail: pheasant tail dyed bright red

Thanks Bash, It's junglecock. Its from the less showy part of the cape where the feathers have no developed nails. I think thats what they call them. I really am finding junglecock to be a versatile feather. They make great soft hackles too. The only part I don't use are the nails.

Actually they are just charity pieces, from salmon tiers that weren't using the leftovers after depleting the eyes or nails.
Here's a pic of them.
