Here's the deal. First, you first should be a follower of this blog. On the right side, below the blog roll is a place to click and follow The Hopper Juan so you don't miss any upcoming announcements. You then have to leave a comment here listing one off your favorite blog posts from where ever you choose to cruise the web. Just make sure it is useful and something good to look at! It can't be from your own blog either. So what is the prize?
Some swag from Montana Fly Company. MFC provided some really cool stuff and enough of it to last a few giveaways. Included in this package is some Henry Fork Hackle, Midge Flash, Fish Eyez, Lucent Beads and a Small Waterproof Fly Box. This is certainly worth the entry fee!
A random # will be generated so I won't be actually "picking" the best post or anything. I will leave this open until next week and then do the drawing.
Thanks for tuning in and take a look at MFC flies & materials here. Good luck!
To insert a live link in the comment, which is very helpful, type this code (1st line only) in the comment window: (sorry, you'll have to type it in)
If I posted this in the comment box, the comment would only say "free giveaway"and when a person clicked on the link, it would take them directly to the Hopper Juan. Like this:Sweet Hares Ear Fly
Some of the goodies!
I'm picky with my blogs but this keeps my attention. Fishing reports from around the state, weekly outtings, stories, photos, all to entertain and inform. This guy (and friends) know what they're doing and catch BIG fish where ever they go.
Always good for new ideas on flytying, sinch we don't have troutwater in the Netherlands flytying is a (almost bigger) hobby aswell.
A great blog about fly fishing in Central PA with great photos. When I can't get on the stream, this always helps.
Being in a big city, I get enjoyment out of this one urban fly fishing You just have to fish where you can!ReplyDelete

Fish Enchantment New Mexico's Angling CommunityReplyDelete
This is a great forum where true fishing reports are made, tips are shared and good people share a lot of information about New Mexico and surrounding fishing areas. Tell them Grabs sent ya!
Definitely MidgeMan's Poudre Canyon Chronicles. I haven't followed it for very long - but he updated it frequently with posts on many different types of flies and aspects of fly tying. He has some great technique posts on there, and is starting to put more fishing posts on, as well. From the looks of things, he is an incredibly accomplished tier, and is a great resource.ReplyDelete
sorry Juan I couldnt get the linky thingy to work.
Definitely the favorite blog of ours. We both learn so much from this blog, it is unreal.
Same as above, a lot of good information there.ReplyDelete
I'd agree with the midge man's blog and Charlies Fly Box, they are great resources, I also have come across Alex Cerveniak's site which I enjoy. I like the pictures of the bugs combined with their life cycles, behavior, as well as imitations. Excellent resource for for learning to match the bugs on the water with the flies in your box.ReplyDelete
Karl Moffat's blog on New Mexico fishing, and related enviro issues:ReplyDelete
Dave Lindsay's A Matter of Life, Death, and FluffChucking. This blog can be found at http://mcfluffchucker.blogspot.com/2011/04/wassuuuuuuuuuuuuuuppppp.htmlReplyDelete
This is a great blog regarding pike fishing and tying predator flies. Well done indeed.
Another vote for Poudrecanyonchronicles. Midge Man's postings are always interesting, whether it be fly tying or fishing or life.
Smallflyfunk has a blog post on how to tie a late phase emerger SBS, very sweet looking fly and pretty good blog over all. Check it out - http://smallflyfunk.blogspot.com
Charlies Flybox has been a really good resource for me in the past. I got to you through them I believe... Love your videos/ instruction. I follow you on Facebook mostly. Hope to meet you some day soon!ReplyDelete
For those of us living in Southwestern CO,Duranglers Blog is one of the best. Weather and river reports and goings on in and around Durango is the one I frequent daily.ReplyDelete

Small Stream reflectionsReplyDelete
One of my favorites is small stream reflections. Brk Trt takes great pictures of wild fish and ties some incredible streamers and flies and eats well which is always a plus for me.
Great Idea I am always looking for blogs to follow though I have to say yours in one of the best. Here is another one I have followed from it infancy.
Sorry the format you have above wasn't working for me.
Here's an enjoyable, easy-to-read blog if you like Tenkara and tying flies:ReplyDelete
Well Juan, my second and third attempts at this didn't work either. I am really inept. JerryReplyDelete
I have tried a couple of time too! I love your site but I am not that computer smart to do this.ReplyDelete
