Guide's Choice Hare's Ear Variant

Many flies have been modified over the years, though their "variant" versions rarely outproduce the original. This fly may prove to be that one! Though distinctly different from the original Hare's Ear, this modified Guide's Choice is a killer pattern that cam represent different insects and various stages. In this version, the pattern is tied on a jig hook and intended to drift lower in the water column. Definitely experiment with the pattern and determine which color combinations and weights work best for you.

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.
