The claret hopper should have a similar profile but obviously materials will differ slightly as follows;
Hook – size 12 wet fly
Thread – black
Body and Thorax – claret seal’s fur
Rib – fine pearl tinsel
Legs – 3 knotted cock pheasant tail fibres each side
Hackle – brown cock hackle
If any club members are tying this for the fly tying competition they will need to bring two examples of the claret hopper to the meeting on Tuesday 16th November 2010.
The flies will will be judged by Paul Little.
