All Things To All Men Hopper - ATTAM
All Things To All Men Hopper by Ryan Houston. 3rd place in the Fly Tying Masters Round 3. What a great pattern from Ryan Houston.
Interestingly, Ryan has provided additional information about this fly. These are his comments:
The bead represents the egg sac. This fly could be a buzzer, a sedge or a daddy. It could be fished as a wet daddy even. The hackle is left full so it can be clipped under if required. It can also be used as a loch style pulling fly.
The fiery brown is a magic colour and the bead also helps dip the butt in the surface.
Well done Ryan.
