Guides Choice Hares Ear

Guides Choice Hares Ear Fly Tying Instructions

The Guides Choice Hares Ear is a great Hares Ear variation.  The Guides Choice has soft hackle as a collar and a peacock herl thorax.  This imitates and emerging caddis or mayfly.  The Guides Choice is a favorite among western fly fishing guides, hence the name.  It is best dead drifted on a nymph rig, but many fish pick it up as the fly is swung at the end of your drift.  A tungsten bead can be added for extra weight.  The Guides Choice Hares Ear is most often tied in size #12-18.  An amazing little fly!
