I fished smaller hopper patterns #8's and 10's on the rivers along the NH / Vermont border as soon as I got my drivers license and went camping up there quite a bit in those days. One stretch of the Ammonusuc River is lined with crop fields and willows and all you have to do is drift a hopper along the willows to get trout lounging in the shade to come out and nail the big bug all day long.

Those were the days! I really have to get back up there again this fall.
