Guide's Choice Hare's Ear Variation

A Classic with a Collar...  And a Jig

This fly is already a standard in most western trout fly boxes, so we decided to tweak it a little bit.  We just stuck it on a jig hook and added a squirrel collar instead or partridge or a hen hackle.  This is a great fly on a Euro rig, but it's also deadly when fished under a big foam dry fly.  Happy tying!
