8 Easy Steps To Tying The Hare’s Ear Nymph (THE BEST ALL ROUND NYMPH FOR CATCHING FISH THE WORLD OVER!)

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.

Thread: Black

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

 

Step 1.

Place the bead on the bead, hook in the vice and wind on thread.

 

Step 2.

Secure the partridge as the tail, length 2/3rd of the body, trim waste.

 

Step 3.

Attach the gold wire as the rib.

 

Step 4.

Now create a lovely even body with the fur, stopping a little bit behind the bead.

 

Step 5.

Wind the gold wire in even, open turns and secure and twist and break waste.

 

Step 6.

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.

 

Step 7.

Now take some Velcro and brush out the fur, it should cloak the body.

 

Step 8.

Whip finish and add a drop of varnish, and you’re now ready to take on the fishing world.
