Schroeder’s Parachute Hopper Fly Tying Video Instructions

Schroeder's Parachute Hopper Fly Tying Video InstructionsThe Schroeder’s Parachute Hopper is one of my favorite hopper patterns.  The Schroeder’s Parachute Hopper is not a new fly by any means.  In fact, many anglers consider it a classic!  The Schroeder’s Parachute Hopper is a highly visible and deadly hopper pattern.  The Schroeder’s Parachute Hopper works great on slow and fast water.  The Parachute Hopper can be tied in many colors and sizes.  The most popular colors are Tan or Olive.  Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout and Big Brown Trout all go crazy for this fly.  A must have in any terrestrial fly box!
