How to Tie Gold Ribbed Hares Ear
What You’ll Need
This fly was designed to match mayflies in the nymph stage. I also believe trout mistake it for several other insects. A lot of people fish this as a scud here on our local tailwaters. You can also add flash for the back instead of mottled quill etc. Sometimes in the sun you can’t go wrong with a bead or something that gives a sparkle to get their attention in the sunshine. I think they can see it from farther away. So sunshine can play a big part in flash flies.
Note: When tying the dubbing in make sure you don’t tie right up to the bead. You need to leave a little room to tie in the quill. This way when you tie in, it will be cinch down and hidden in the dubbing along with the thread wraps. The key is not to see the thread after tying it off.
