Excite…Provoke…Entice

Hare's Ear-nymph-fly tying-fly pattern-macro-photography-SwittersB

A few years ago, this Gold Ribbed, Bead Head Hare’s Ear Nymph was a ‘must have’ nymph pattern for the fly fisher. Today, for whatever reasons, it seems to be less prevalent. The creative, innovative fly tier, inundated with a huge amount of new tying materials, fell away from the tinsel, rabbit fur pattern. The only new addition here is the gold bead and some UV dubbing in the thorax with the rabbit fur guard hairs. Still a nice pattern for the stout clinger/crawler mayfly nymph patterns.

      I’m with you Kevin…ran low at beginning of Fall so need to tie up quite a few patterns after tying binge in 2012…thanks for the visit and comment. Good tying! Just FYI, SwittersB used to be SwittersB & Fly Fishing…so from 2008 to 2013 there are a lot of great resources.
