TROUTS TIES // How to Tie the Hovercraft Hopper with Eric Schmidt

Ivan Orsic / Aug 26, 2022

It's Hopper season. With that in mind, Trouts own Eric Schmidt swung by the studio to tie one of his go-to hopper patterns for late summer and early fall. Inspired by a trip to Patagonia, the Hovercraft Hopper is a quick and simple tie that's perfect for fishing on it's own and can hold up a heavy dropper below if that's your style. It's a great option for your favorite freestone this time of year.
