Letort Grasshopper And Cricket

Each of these is tied exactly the same way, but with cricket-like material for the cricket and grasshopper-like material for the hopper.

Hopper

Spin yellow-tan seals fur or spinning wool body Fold a wing of brown turkey and tie this in flat after coating it with clear nail polish and rounding the end of the folded section Tie in a bunch of either grey or green or yellow deer hair as in the muddler minnow. Hold the hair very firmly to minimize spinning. As you now know the difficult trick with deer hair is to PREVENT it spinning. It will spin a little but trim the head and the fibres below the head.
