The Pink Bum Grasshopper

Pink Bum Grasshopper Fly

Our Pink Bum Grasshopper is a variation on one of Peter Leuver’s Badja hopper series from his book Fur & Feather.

Why the pink bum you may well ask?

This is my addition after having watched a large number over the season clinging on to the windscreen wiper while driving slowly through rough grassy terrain and noting their distinctive pink rear end from the trout’s perspective.
