Para Hoppers

To be honest I haven't fished or tied these Para Hoppers before but after Gerhardt Goosen sent me a link to an article regarding their effectiveness, I decided to tie up a batch of them for my Lesotho trip in Jan and am rather stoked how they came out.

The Abdomen is Deerhair dubbing applied by a dubbing loop and the Thorax is a Spec Olive Flyworx blend. The wing casing are taken from a Jungle cock pelt. These three were tied onto a #14 Grip hook

I truly believe these are going to get mullard up in Lesotho and will definitely take a box along for the trip.

A slightly different Jungle cock feather used here as well as a different coloured post out of Antron, also tied onto #14 Grip

Looks like I managed to trap the bottom hackle filaments on this one but am sure the fish wont care.

These were tied onto a #14 Mouche hook and I use light purple deadly dazzle for the post and indicator as well as another different Jungle cock feather.
