The Hares ear is a long established pattern that has caught countless fish over the years. I have known some anglers fish four of the same pattern on a cast! For those of us that like to mix it up a little though this is a great alternative to an old well loved fly pattern.
This can be fished on it own or in a team of flies and can be tied in larger sizes for pulling. You can play about with the body and bud colours the important thing with this pattern is size and profile. Why not give it a go and let me know how you get on in the comments below.
