The Snowy Mountain Hopper is based on the beautiful yellow winged locust , (Gastrimargus Musicus). They can fly in large, even plague propotions during late summer and can be found along stream edges and when they are the fishing is remarkable. Hungry trout aggressively taking these hoopers and the takes on this fly are trully memorable.
