Hare's Ear Hot Spot
Question: Is it a midge? Is it a Hare's Ear Nymph? Is it an Egg pattern?
Answer: all of the above.
Using a fly with a hot spot is a great way to spark some fishy interest on an otherwise slow day. That's a proven fact with most patterns on the market.
A simple Hare's Ear pattern was added to a #2457 midge hook and loaded up with a UV Ice dub hot spot that's larger in proportion than a hot spot should be. The end result? A pattern that uses it's tungsten bead to sink in calm water and act like a Nymph would...or float in swift water like an egg would. This is a super productive pattern with proven results.
Approximate fly dimensions:
- Length (eye to bend): 9mm
- Hook Gap: 4mm
- Tail Length: NA
