Ice Hare's Ear

Cheech - March, 2016

The Hare's Ear is one of those flies that most people have fished and tied. Part of the charm of a Hare's Ear is that they are super effective even though they are pretty messy and buggy. I have been tying Hare's Ears in different variations for many years, and this version has been pretty good to me due to how effective Ice Dub is. Ice Dub has just the right amount of flash, UV sparkle, and black magic to make fish for miles crave it... This pattern can be tied in many different sizes and colors just like the original Hare's Ear pattern. There really isn't too much more to write about this pattern because it's so simple... Check out the video below.
