Identifying Hopper Water

RIO Products

In this week's Fly Fishing Tip, RIO ambassador Rob Parkins explains how to identify the right kind of water for fishing grasshoppers (hoppers) in. Hoppers are a prime food source for trout in the hot months, and with big flies and no delicate presentation needed, are a fantastic way to fly fish for trout in a river.

RIO's Fly Fishing Tips series are short, less-than-a-minute videos, each bought to you by a RIO employee or ambassador and showing a single fly fishing tip to help you become a better fly fisher. The series includes freshwater, saltwater and Spey topics, and a mix of casting, fishing and gear tips - some basic, some technical, and everything in between.

Each new tip is released on RIO's Facebook and Instagram pages every Friday, so if you like the this episode and want to get these tips quickly, be sure to follow RIO on these platforms.
