The Hare's Ear nymph is one of the best, and most consistent fly patterns of all time. In my opinion. It is a go to pattern for me whether I'm fishing two inches off the bottom or ten inches under a hopper. Fish eat it everywhere, all the time. This pattern, the Hare's Ear Emerger, is simply the next stage of the classic Hare's Ear, perfect for slurping trout that are picking hatching mayflies from the foam.
