Bead Head Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly - 2 Pack
A Bead Head Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly - 2 Pack features the notable shagginess of this pattern meant to emulate an emerging insect, like a caddis or mayfly, rising through the water column and shedding its nymphal shuck as it goes. The bead head on this Soft Hackle Hare's Ear allows the wet fly to sink lower into the water column than its non-beaded cousin before rising with the line in the current at the end of its flow downstream. Typical of soft hackle wet flies, the Hare's Ear is easier to fish than a dry fly or a nymph, and trout will mistake it for an emerging insect and hit it hard just below the surface. Get in on the fun fishing soft hackles with a Bead Head Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly - 2 Pack!
- Use for brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, steelhead, landlocked salmon, and bass
- Mimics a variety of hatching insects while in the process of shedding their nymphal shucks when rising from a stream or river bottom
- Technique: cast the Bead Head Soft Hackle Hare's Ear slightly downstream into a riffle, let it sink, and swing it with the current allowing it to rise with your line as it flows away from you to imitate the emerging insect. On the rise and just before reaching the surface is when trout will most likely strike. Try to keep your fly rod at a 45-degree angle to assist the fish in self-hooking. You can also send a short cast upstream and let the Soft Hackle Hare's Ear drift just below the surface. On still water with cruising trout or bass, cast the fly in front and twitch to attract attention.
