How to Tie a GFA Hopper

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “This is Walter Wiese’s GFA Hopper, GFA stands for General Foam Attractor. It’s one of my favorite hopper attractor indicator patterns because it’s extremely easy to tie, and just seems to do everything well.

For a hook, I’m going to use a Dai-Riki #280 in size 10 but you can tie the GFA from as small as a size 14 all the way up to a size 6. Start by mashing the barb and getting the hook firmly secured in the jaws of your tying vise.”
