Foam Hopper was tied by Ken Broadhead. You will find many more of his exceptional flies at The Flies of Ken Broadhead.

Ken's Notes: This is a nice easy to tie grasshopper imitation. Grasshoppers come in a variety of colors so use whatever you like. If you tie this in black you can call it a cricket. If you need thin fly foam its available at the Anglers Workshop in Washington State.
