Tying a Hare’s Ear Nymph

The origins of this fly are hard to come by but I found references that trace it back to the 1880′s, and even as far back as the 1600′s. Charles Cotton and Izaak Walton ring a bell.  Enough said, this fly has stood the test of time. With all it’s variations the gold ribbed hare’s ear can imitate a wide variety of trout foods, but especially mayfly and stonefly nymphs.   It works great on the Yellowstone, Boulder, Stillwater, Madison, Lamar, and just about every other freestone river I can think of.
