Default Claret hopper

Click the image to open in full size.

Hook: TMC 200R #16
Body: Pheasant tail (dyed claret)
Rib: Copper wire
Legs: Pheasant tail (dyed black)
Hackle: Grizzly claret
Thread: Danvilles 6/0 claret

Tied small for when trout start to become wary of fly lines and tippets! I like this pattern, by simply clipping the hackle you can really get it down into the surface film and the slight curve of the hook keeps those legs enticingly just below the film.

Regards

Iain

Not sure, the sparseness has his characteristic style, however, the 200R tends to be a hook used a lot in the US but not so much in Europe.
