Hard to believe, but it is still hopper time

The weather has been warm, the hoppers are everywhere, and judging from the reaction to hopper flies- hopper time continues. I fished last night here on Rapid Creek (tried out the Echo kid's rod the Gecko- that thing rules for fishing in town, never-mind its bright yellow color and foam urban camo handle). The fish were readily taking hoppers.

The fish seemed to like Charlie Boy Hoppers the best last night. I wish I had had some Dave's Hoppers with me. They have been working well. Right before dark I switched to my new favorite fly- the Big Secret Cricket. It took several fish.

I hadn't fished for several days and last night's hopper fishing gave me a much needed fix.
