The Bristol Hopper Red is based on patterns that first saw light of day on the long established reservoirs of Blagdon and Chew Reservoir in West England. The Bristol Hopper Red is fished just on or below the surface and represens a broad range of creattures such as the crane fly. The Bristol Hopper Red is a broad spectrum imitator, it is seen by trout as a natural insect with its tied legs. Bristol Hoppers are available in a range of colours.
For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Bristol Hopper Red.
