    after additional research on this pattern, i found better instructions for tying the pontoon hopper





    Pontoon Hopper

    Hook - Dry fly style
    Thread - Color to match
    Body - Turkey quill for large hoppers - 1 1/2 inches and up;
    goose quills for medium sized hoppers - 3/4 to 1 1/4 inch
    Legs/Pontoons - Smaller quills from duck or other small game bird wing feathers
    Feelers - Moose mane
    Eyes - Black painted eyes
    Paint - Main body - Apple green acrylic
    Legs/pontoon - Burnt orange acrylic

    If you are the creative type, you can paint the body to look like a real hopper.


    It certainly is not a very durable fly and I doubt that it would survive to catch a second fish.
