Rough Hare's Ear Nymph

It is probably the most all-round and iconic nymph there is - and a fly you absolutely must have in your nymph-box when the target is trout or graylings. Who originally tied the first versions of the Hare's Ear Nymph or Goldribbed Hare's Ear Nymph is not known, but an Englishman in the early 1900s must be thought to be the first to tie the nymph in that form. We have had the talented fly tyer Jan de Hass from Holland in the studio to demonstrate his version of the Hare's Ear Nymph in a version with turkey fibers as tail, body and back shield.

Hook: Ahrex FW 561, Nymph # 12
Thread: White
Tail: Turkey tail
Body: Turkey tail
Rib: Oval gold tinsel

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.
