Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly - 2 Pack
A Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly - 2 Pack supplies a pair of emerging insect imitators that fly anglers have used for hundreds of years! Like all soft hackle wet flies, the Hare's Ear is an impressionist because it mimics insects across the aquatic spectrum rising to the surface while casting aside their nymphal shucks. Trout certainly take advantage at this precarious moment of the insect's lifespan. Aside from fish finding something specific to eat upon seeing a Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly, the pattern is easy to fish as there is no drag in the water to disrupt its presentation. The pattern can also be very effective when teamed with a wooly bugger and a productive dry fly mate when dropped behind an Elk Hair Caddis. Use smaller hook sizes of the pattern and fish it alone during summer months when tan caddis hatches recur. There is a reason this pattern is a long-time favorite, so you'll do well by fishing with a Soft Hackle Hare's Ear Wet Fly - 2 Pack!
- Use for brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, landlocked salmon, and bass
- Mimics a variety of hatching insects rising from a stream or river bottom while shedding their nymphal shucks.
- Technique: cast the 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 to imitate the emerging insect. Trout will likely hit the wet fly on the rise just before it reaches the surface. Try to keep your fly rod at a 45-degree angle to assist the fish in self-hooking. You can also try 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.
