Bead Head Hare's Ear Nymph

The Hare's Ear fly pattern is probably the most productive nymph there is. Its beauty is in its simplicity. The buggy nature of the fly pattern represents any number of insect species and entices fish with its lifelike movement. Adding a bead head only enhances the Hare's Ear fly, getting it down into the feeding zone quickly for longer drifts at the right depth. Excellent for still water fishing and can be used as a dropper pattern in any situation. Color, Natural. Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

"The Hare's Ear is a go to general purpose. Bead head helps to sink faster and adds some flash."

"The proportions of this hook are perfect for most standard nymphs. Incredibly sharp right out of the sleeve, and plenty strong given the wire's diameter."

bigger is better,

"Try this patten in a size 12 or even 10. Cast it right at the end of the rapids in plunge pools. The fish will take it almost instantly. The larger size definitely draws more fish in. I've even caught fingerling native brookies on the size 10. The fly barely fits into their mouths."

"Especially early in the season when the water is high and fast. Drift this along the bottom and be ready."
