I've got the "bob's hopper" cutter, and have been catching far too many bluegill with them ;) I can't remember if I bought the 12, or 14. Nice pattern, fish love this pattern. I tie it a little simpler than above, with a little smaller profile and hook, but it still rocks....

- I just tie it without the wing, I feel like the fish don't see the wing anyhow...
