Very inventive spin on the mini and nice tie Simon!

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH7 touchscreen. It has a sweet macro with a setting that lets you zoom in really nice. Got it on sale at Amazon for $100.

Been using it for a few months now, dropped it on concrete twice, albeit from not far up, and not even a SCRATCH.

That is a nice hopper Brad!

Hopper Juan Variant. Original pattern by Juan Ramirez, variation by Ben Smith, tie by me.

Two pieces 1/4" foam with a 1/8" piece as an indicator.

Hook is size 10 dry fly.

Same ingredients as the mini but brown thread and some flash is added.

Crappy picture here, sorry for the operator error.

I'd say that's your best tie yet! Very clean and nice segmenting.

LOL I was just pointing out how ridiculous it would be to not post at all, not saying y'all need to hurry up.

Mine aren't even that good!

Mine is nothing special either, but I've never tied one before so I'm happy to have tried something new.

Yup! That was actually the first Hopper Juan I have tied.

Great tie mud. I'll take a half dozen. For real though, bring some to Mexico the end of this month.
