||Standard wet fly hook, e.g.
Kamasan B-170, sizes 10 - 14
||Flat gold tinsel
||Dubbed mixture of natural and dyed
orange and yellow hares ear fur, well picked out to give loose
"untidy" effect after ribbing.
||After the pheasant tail nymph, the
Gold-ribbed Hare's Ear is probably the most successful nymph pattern
ever invented. This improved version by Eric Begbie of Scotland
uses dyed, as well as natural, hare's ear fur. It is a general
purpose nymph for use either just sub-surface or at greater
depths for all trout species on rivers and stillwaters. It can
be leaded for use on fast-flowing rivers or given a "goldhead"
bead on a longer shank hook for specialist applications.
