Huck Hoppers


SKU: 100-HuckHopper Category: Tags: ,


As featured in California Fly Fishers Magazine this is the “infamous” Huck Hopper I modeled after the great Charlie Craven’s “Charlie Boy Hopper”. This is one of those “guide flies” that looks dramatically better from below (the way the fish see it) than above in the fly box at the fly shop. Its deer hair wing is huge to support floating and the big appearance of a splayed grasshopper wing. This fly can function as your indicator all day because it has been designed for durability and floatability.  It is my cornerstone for dry dropper fishing. i have fished the Huck-Hopper all over the world for many different species with great success.

This fly is made from the best materials, is super durable to the point where you will start to notice bite marks from trout attacks.  It’s buoyant so you can fish it all day….even if it gets beat up with bite marks.


  • This is the fly I kill with on the Upper Kern River
  • The Huck-Hopper also works great for Large Mouth Bass.

    The Huck Hopper has become a legendary fly in Colorado and I always carry them with me regardless of the season. I use a Huck Hopper as an indicator in the winter on the Arkansas and have had fish hit it even in the dead of winter. There’s no better hopper for spring, summer and fall fishing and I often pair it with a Huck Rainbow Warrior and a Huck Midge when I’m prospecting for fish. The biggest rainbow I’ve ever seen took a Huck Hopper on the Blue River in Colorado and added to the legend! You’re gonna want to have a half dozen of these with you when you’re fishing the rivers in Colorado. There’s nothing quite like it!

    I’ve purchased and used Huckaby flies for the last 2 years. They work. Huckaby flies have transformed me from a beginner to an intermediate fly fisherman. These flies attract fish even with my questionable casts and weak drifts. These flies are excellently made, contain excellent materials and are extremely durable.
