Canadian Hopper – Donald “Chubby” McChubbin

How can you not love the nickname Chubby. This is a simple hopper pattern for the late summer and into the fall. This won’t float like the foam hoppers, but should present as a nice drowned hopper. It should be good for some hard heavy takes just below the surface.

Hook: Hopper 3xl curved shank #1270
Thread: 6/0 yellow
Tail: Red hackle fibers
Body: Orange wool
Rib: Yellow floss
Wing: Turkey quill
Head: spun and clipped deer body hair


Oh Canada

Happy Birthday Canada!

Here is a fly I tied for a swap last year, the Arctic Firefly. This is a pattern I found in “A Compendium of Canadian Fly Patterns” by Bob Jones and Paul Marriner.
