Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear
There’s a reason they call this fly the “Guides” Choice Hare’s Ear. Who would know better what flies are effective than the guides who spend their living on the water needing to hook into fish to keep their clients coming back. If you are a Hare’s Ear fan, you need to give this fly a whirl.
The Guides Choice Hares Ear is a perfect blend of some of the best and most fishy materials used in fly tying. With a gold bead, gold rib, hares ear abdomen, peacock herl thorax and the piece de resistance, the partridge soft hackle it is a very forgiving fly to fish.
When I fish a Guides Choice Hares Ear I try and maximize my drift. Dead drift it low and deep, let it swing through the end of your run and even give it a couple quick short and small twitch strips at the end of your drift. You will be surprised at how much water you can effectively cover with this pattern.
