How to Tie a Gold Bead/Gold Ribbed Flashback Hare’s Ear Fly: Video

When we talk about buggy flies what else comes to mind but the Hare’s ear. This is a personal favorite for me, it is a fly that I am constantly fishing and tying variations of. An extremely versatile fly that can imitate a wide range of aquatic life. I find most often that I fish it in a size 16 matching smaller stoneflies and some mayflies. Don’t be afraid to run the gamut with this pattern and have a wide size range available in your box.

Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers
