One day when I was fishing one of Yellowstone Park Northeast rivers, a large cutthroat trout chased my hopper after it was taken by current and washed away at certain depth. That trout repeated the "darts" a couple more times. It must have been chasing drowned hoppers. That's right. All terrestrial creatures will eventually sink (unlike hatching insects from the water). So while every tyer tries to device high-floating & eye-appealing patterns in this era, I choose the other direction = going down with wet-fly/soft-hackle. Indeed there are not many drowned hopper patterns even on online searches. So it would be great if I could make a niche in the market, but rather, I want to make people aware of different ways of thinking and observation. So here's my interpretation.
Same idea was applied for crickets.
