Randall Kaufmann introduced the Orange Stimulator pattern in 1982 to imitate Salmonflies. The Stimulator also makes a good hopper pattern.
Kaufmann finds that the pattern is often overdressed by other tiers. He recommends a hairwing and tail that is sparse, yet flared, to achieve the appearance of bulk. This will help stabilize the fly on the water surface.
