In this fly tying tutorial Cheech ties the Twisted Foam Hopper!
This is a pattern that I have seen for over 20 years on old online forums in Utah. Robert Williamson is the guy who came up with this bug, and I figured I’d bring it back into my tying arsenal and give it a try. Through playing with some different techniques, I found a way to add taper into the back of the fly, and I substituted synthetics for the wing. I tie a basic one and a more complicated one with more bells and whistles called the Hoptimus Prime. Once you get the technique down it’s a very simple fly that floats high and is very durable. Tie them in different sizes and colors to match your local bugs!
