Many trout anglers have a couple of Hare’s Ear Nymph s in their fly boxes, however have you attempted the dry-fly variation? A timeless parachute pattern that’s incredibly efficient, it’s especially efficient in slower to medium currents. The fly flights low in the water to offer a natural profile to trout. Fish these dry flies throughout a hatch of mayflies and when trout are drinking duns from the surface area.
In this week’s fantastic video from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions, he strolls you through the actions to develop a Hare’s Ear Parachute, which integrates the appearance of the well-known nymph with the shape of the Adams Parachute dry fly. As normal, Tim has a couple of fantastic connecting ideas that will assist make the connecting procedure much easier and make you a more effective tier. The method he produces the post keeps whatever out of the method up until the very end, when you snip the idea of the yarn to permit it to splay and fluff. Then the method he prepares and covers the hackle takes a great deal of the fumbling out of the job.
