How to tie your own ultimate stillwater, river, reservoir, stream, ‘you name it kind of water’, see where I’m going here, nymph!
A few simple steps to rolling your own Hare’s Ear!
You Will Need…
Hook: Standard wet, pick a size to suit.
Bead: Gold bead, size to suit
Tail: Partridge, dark
Body: Hare’s ear, ( although I’m fast preferring squirrel)
Rib: Medium Gold wire
Thorax: Pinch n loop dubbing ball
Place the bead on the bead, hook in the vice and wind on thread.
Secure the partridge as the tail, length 2/3rd of the body, trim waste.
Attach the gold wire as the rib.
Now create a lovely even body with the fur, stopping a little bit behind the bead.
Wind the gold wire in even, open turns and secure and twist and break waste.
Take a pinch of fur and push over the bead, then with thread wraps secure and roll around the hook shank, creating a bulbous area.
Now take some Velcro and brush out the fur, it should cloak the body.
Whip finish and add a drop of varnish, and you’re now ready to take on the fishing world.
