Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear

Tim Flager of Tightline Productions demonstrates how to tie the Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear in this fly tying video tutorial.

A nice twist on the classic gold-ribbed hare’s ear nymph, the Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear adds a peacock herl thorax and Hungarian partridge collar – you can’t go wrong with that combo!
