Here is a nice little pattern posted by toflyfish on YouTube. I like the use of bead-chain instead of lead eyes. Some YouTube subscribers commented about substituting deer hair for the craft fur. The floating properties of deer hair help the hook to ride "point up."
A good friend of mine down in Missouri showed me this video and I thought I would post it for you. We all know how great grasshoppers can be and this one is relatively easy to put together.
I remember watching Leroy Hyatt on The Angler's Art many years ago. Leroy and Dave always tied great flies and taught solid techniques that I still use today.
