    Flityer... I revised your post in order to get the pics to show. I'm not sure but I think you were trying to post the pics by using the Insert Link button instead of the Insert Image button.

    Anyway... that's a GREAT looking Hares Ear!!!

    Hi Steve ,
    Thank you for fixing the pictures and the complements I enjoy sharing ideas it helps others learning to tie as well. Not to mention this pattern works about anywhere in North America.

    Great pattern and nicely detailed steps! I was tying these last night, using a slightly different technique/materials. I tie my hare's ears with a flashback wing case and partridge tails/legs. I agree, it's an easy tie and has been very productive for me here in Colorado. I haven't tied mine with a lead underbody and that's a constant source of discussion amongst tyers at the Saturday winter seminars at our local shop.
    Here's to screaming lines and tight drags...
    ...hey, wait a sec!


    Cheers!

    Hi bcbrown2,

    How about posting a picture of your fly?

    The Hare's Ear is a nymph and should be fished low in the water column. I don't think I have ever fished a non-weighted Hare's Ear.

    Very nice pictoral tie-along instructural post. I tie most of my nynphs in weighted and non-weighted versions and use according to water conditions.
