Bead Head Legged Hares Ear (but not really)

This rather simple and easy to tie nymph works great as imitating stonefly nymphs, dragonfly or damselfly nymphs and as an all around attractor pattern. Great for nymphing for trout, or even fishing for sunfish and bluegill. I have even caught a few Rio Cichlids on this fly.

I used a dubbing I got from tying the Rio Bandito fly I put on video last week. The material used on that fly produces so much Aussie possum dubbing I had to figure out a good way to use it. And this fly works perfectly for that. Waste not want not right? So check out that fly video from last week here..

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
