The Fat Albert Hopper is a classic example of having your cake and eating it too. An extraordinarily high floating grasshopper pattern, the Fat Albert Hopper is a great choice this time of year of southern freestone and tailwater flows. To make your efforts even more deadly, string a Prince or Pheasant under it. The Fat Albert Hopper is one of the best strike indicators you will ever use. It gives you a one-two punch that is tough to top.
