Tying Hans' Cricket Fly

Tying the Hans' Cricket Fly 

Cricket fly patterns have become a staple in my summer fly selection. Bill Logan’s Big Secret Cricket has been a huge producer for me over the past 4 seasons. I recently began tying a variation of Hans’s Hopper to mimic a cricket. The resulting pattern, Hans’ Cricket fly, has been working very well on recent outings.
Body/Head: 2mm Black Foam
Abdomen/Thorax: Ice Dubbing
Strike Indicator: Hot Pink Ice Dubbing
