Blade Runner - Gold
When we designed RIO's Steel Plow for steelhead, many folks commented that it would also make a good hopper. With that feedback, we set out to do just that. We made a few tweaks and downsized the offering to come up with RIO's Blade Runner Hopper. This bad boy has a wide platform that makes a beautiful splat when hammering grassy banks. The white poly wing is easy for the angler to see, and the thick, two-tone foam body has plenty of buoyancy to suspend your favorite dropper.
