    Great Job. I have used this method for years.
    One Problem: Here in Utah where I live, only two flies are allowed on the line. Using a dry as an indicator, means that I can only use one nymph. I still occasionally use a foam indicator instead of the dry indicator so that I can use two nymphs.

    have you ever tried this method (mono loop system) on a Klinkhamer?

    thanks for the tutorial–very easy to understand and very informative–i’ll have to tie up some hoppicators–your droppers look great as well–great info on how to fight larger fish!

    I have never had much success with multi-fly rigs. I do not respond well to my shit getting fucking tangled all together or losing 3 flies to a snag. Save yourself the time and headache by turning over a few rocks or just watch some glassy water to see whats coming off.

    Appreciate the effort, but you made no sense whatsoever. I don’t use the eye of the fly, and I did the loop to loop and put this through that- come on man- show this with a rope and large object or something. This video was impossible to follow.

    The insruction video for the Hop-Icator is confusing to me. Mono loops don’t slip, You must be talking about something other than non-slip mono loops? You say mono loops front and back. I see the front loop thru the hook and around the fly. I see you thread the tippet through the rear hook, but I son’t see you tying it on. You call it a mono loop, so that must be what you did off camera. then you say wrap the line with a loop to loop through the first mon loop. It doesn’t show this important step. Last, you don’t show how to thread the tag end from the front through the mono loop in back. Are you making the back mono loop with the tag end as you cinch it.? Maybe you think it is obvious, but as a customer interested in your fly I hope you will consider my difficulties and write me back.

  27. jonathan parkes says:

    I’m not trying to give you a hard time! After seeing your instructional video a few more times, I get that you tie non-slip mono loops at both ends. Then you make a loop to loop through the loop in front, not the hook, as you would with an indicator. Then you run the tag end through the loop of the mono loop in back. You don’t cinch it, it just sits there loose for when you need to adjust the length of the leader if the front end of the fly.
    Did I get it yet?
