Stubble in Trouble (The Respectfully Tucked Away Hare’s Ear Nymph)

The Hare’s Ear..The Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear…The Bead Head Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear….so it progressed. And, did it progress right out of your fly box? Oh, some of you still have a spot for a few along with the must have Adams. But, in the quest for the new fix, I think perhaps, if not taken for granted like you know who, then you have perhaps opted for that new curvaceous  hook and some concoction that owes its worthiness to the original bristling gem…the Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear.


The GRHE or the beaded version, became the nymph staple up until about eight or so years ago when boredom, innovation or anarchy set in and the Hare’s Ear became respectfully tucked away. No, you say. Well, perhaps not you, but the old dynamic duo of the GRHE and the PTN (Pheasant Tail Nymph) have been set aside in a 7 year itch sort of way….later to be appreciated. Oh, and don’t think just because you reflexively resort to a hare’s ear dubbed thorax you’re off the hook. This is a good pattern for the chunky, clinger mayfly nymphs. Don’t let it go the way of the Green Butt Skunk and Woolly Worm!!!

Tutorial (Tier initially uses pheasant tail fibers for tail….see how easy the classic is forsaken? Then note in the bead version the tail is hare’s ear tied in at the tail).
