Czech-style Hare's Ear

Being that the Hare's Ear is such a classic and venerable pattern, it's only fitting that applying new styles to it occur more often than not. The Czech-style of nymphing has overtaken many areas of fly flshing, and it's easy to convert the Hare's Ear to that type of a pattern, as shown in the fly tying tutorial.

There are many options that you have with this pattern, and I explore a few during the video. I do want to stress that this is a larger pattern (sizes 8-12) and I fish it in fast water, thus you'll notice that I tie this pattern in the "guide style" with few of those options added on. Feel free to experiment on your own, and be sure to post any of your own variations in the "Comments" section below.

Featured in this YouTube fly tying tutorial are the J100BL jig hooks by Allen Fly Fishing; you can view those hooks and many more at the following link:

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.
