Default Re: 1st ever hares ear!

Well its to do with a tail image. About a good 1cm of the end of the hackle has a scale like look that is a good tail.
Click the image to open in full size.
Select that area of the hackle with your fingers, enough that you're happy with. Then pull the rest of the hair off about 1 inch below it to give you a good strip to tie it to the hook with. Then tie on your chenille at the shank, wrap forward, tie off.
And since theres a large bluntnose minnow population where I live, I use a sharpie and draw a line down the side to imitate their black lateral line.
