|Some Hoppicators I recently tied up.|
The Hoppicator. Mikey Wier, who I've admired as an angler for quite some time, originally tied the Hoppicator as an indicator fly with so much damn foam on it that it could suspend up to three flies below. We've all used hopper dropper set up's before and they're by far one of my favorite set ups to fish. But ultimately adjusting the length (depth) of your dropper flies is a re-rigging nightmare. So the Hoppicator has mono loops tied directly into the skyscraper of foam so a simple loop-to-loop connection can attach the Hoppicator to your leader and the tag end of the loop-to-loop passes through the tail mono loop to then attach your tippet and your flies. Genius.
