This little hopper pattern comes from the mind of my good pal and fellow MFC fly designer, Juan Ramirez. This is a smaller version of his original Hopper Juan pattern. Its really nice to have a smaller version of some of the bigger hopper patterns out there. Somtimes a number 8 hopper is just too big. This size 12 is a great alternative if the fish aren't on the big hoppers which can be quite often the case.
