About the Hare's Ear Trout Fly

The Hare's Ear is a 'Classic'. It has had its reserved place in flyboxes of anglers for decades and decades. This pattern is used from the begining of the season to the close, from the rough and tumble streams to the quiet stillwaters with equal success.

Expert Tip:

I recommend the angler to try a dry fly - e.g. suppose the angler sees a rising fish, let him casting line and fly to dry for a minute previous to making a cast and then throw over the fish and let it float down without motion. This is a killing plan when fishing with duns.
