Fly Of The Week
Next to the venerable Wooly Bugger, the Hare's Ear has been my personal best producing fly on the river Blue.
Normally I fish it with a beadhead but I also carry a varied selection of non-beadhead sizes for fishing the middle and upper columns.
This fly is one of the classics and can simulate many manners of aquatic larvae or crustaceans.
It can be tied as large as size 8 or as small as size 20.
With the primary material being the fur of a hare, the fly can be manipulated into a number of different presentations. It's a dandy for sure.
