Tunghead Hare's Ear Grub

Bead head nymphs don't have to be fancy to be effective.


The Hare's Ear is quite possibly one of the most trusted bead head nymphs in fly fishing. The texture of Hare's Ear is perfect for creating buggy looking nymphs. We've added a Tungsten bead to the head of this fly to get it down in the current so now you have a simple, but excellent imitation for fast water larva. Color, Hare's Ear.
Sizes: 12, 14, 16.

    Excellent all-around prospecting nymph. The tungsten bead gets the fly down quickly in fast water and is useful in still water when hand twisting. #12 is a good change of pace or as the larger fly in a two fly system.

    Orvis' makes the highest quality flies. This particular fly - the Tunghead Hare's Ear Grub works fantastically on Pine Creek in the Pittsburgh Metro. I would highly recommend it for any Appalachian fisheries!

    Excellent Hare’s Ear Pattern - 11/27/2013

    The Orvis tunghead hare’s ear grub is an excellent variation on the traditional hare’s ear pattern. I have had success with this fly fishing it alone along undercut banks, deeper riffles and pools. I have also had good results fishing this pattern as a dropper fly on high floating dries. Very productive on a recent trip.
