FRESH FROM THE ARCHIVE: Trouts Tips - How to Set Up a Hopper Dropper Rig

Ivan Orsic / Jul 22, 2020

Yesterday, we touched on nine pieces of gear that will get you ready for Hopper Season. It got us thinking back a couple of years ago when Dave Lovell graced us with a quick and easy way to set up your hopper-dropper rig.

It's hard to beat the effectiveness of a Hopper-Dropper rig in mid-to-late summer here in the Rockies. The hopper-dropper rig is effective on both Freestones and Tailwaters and does a great job of presenting flies to fish who are holding in those classic summer lies. Whether the fish prefers a big bushy terrestrial or an attractor nymph, the Hopper-Dropper covers your bases.

In this blast from the past, former Trouts Education and Outfitting Manager Dave Lovell explained how he likes to set up his Hopper-Dropper rig. These are merely guidelines. Depth, fly choice, and tippet size depend on the river and river conditions you are seeing out there, so feel free to change depths, flies, and arrangement!
