The Tungsten Bead Soft Hackle Hares Ear takes inspiration from the classic Hares Ear Nymph and applies it to a soft hackle design. Perfect for imitating emerging insects like mayflies and caddis, this soft hackle has the buggy appearance that Hares Ears are known for with the added advantage of a tungsten bead, flash ribbing, and soft hackle collar. With a tungsten bead, this fly sinks quickly and rides deep, while its buggy appearance adds movement while drifting through the water.
The Tungsten Bead Soft Hackle Hares Ear is one of those flies that you can fish any day of the year, but it especially pays off from spring through fall whenever insects are hatching and fish are keyed in on emergers. This fly can be fished on a dead drift, swung down and across, or even worked into a setup of multiple soft hackles, and it is most commonly fished in sizes 14 and 16. A fly that can catch fish whether you’re on a tiny steam or a large river, the Tungsten Bead Soft Hackle Hares Ear should never be left behind.
