Fly Tying Tutorial – Hare’s Ear Special

Not just a Hare’s Ear but a Hare’s Ear Special. This little fly is a killer bug to have in your box. With a bit of flash and the wonderfully buggy Hare’s Ear, this fly is a heavy hitter. The Robinson’s Hare’s Ear Special is a perfect little dropper fly that pairs great under an Amy’s Ant, Hippy Stomper, or other buoyant dry flies. In the summer months, this pairing is an excellent choice to quickly work and cover lots of water. This pattern is most closely imitative of a caddis but can fake its way as an attractor for various other aquatic nymphs. Why wouldn’t a fish want to give it a taste?
