Hopper Pronotum Cutters

   
 
For the realistic fly tyer, these pronotum cutters offer the height of realism.  Sure, the trout probably can't see that funny looking "shield" on the top of the hopper, but for the realistic tyer, the pronotum is a critical component to tying realism.  Call us crazy, but we couldn't just ignore this part of the true hopper in our designs.    

Hopper Pronotum Cutters
available in three sizes: 
Large (4), Medium (6-8), and Small (10-12).
