The Cricket Dry Fly
This cricket fly pattern is tied just like a Dave’s hopper but all black. It has its great days on the river though. The cricket fly is commonly overlooked by trout fisherman. I highly recommend you tie some of these and keep them handy. You could also color a daves hopper all black with a sharpie if you are lazy 🙂 The cricket is a scrumptious meal for any trout and they commonly fall into rivers from shady banks. The trout will anxiously await them in the undercuts and logjams.
