Video: Top Five Flies for September 2019

In this month’s “Top 5” video from Trouts Fly Fishing in Denver, Eric Schmidt and Zeke Hersh float the Colorado River throwing hoppers. Then they head back to the shop to share their Top 5 patterns for this time of year. As you might expect these are all pretty big and most feature some form of foam or bushy wings. All of these flies work well as the top fly in a hopper-dropper rig fished right along the bank.
