The Story

Sometimes even the best pattern isn't enough and a trout needs a little more incentive to strike. Adding a bit of flash can be the difference between no fish and consistent strikes on a given day. Make sure there are a couple of these Flashback flies in the appropriate sizes in the Hare's ear section of your fly box. Color, Hare's Ear.

Sizes 10, 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a proven troutcatcher I bought the Flashback Hares Ear Nymph because it always produces strikes from trout, especially early season. The purchase was made to increase my supply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When an ordinary Pheasant Tail won't do! This fly with its extra bulk is great as an attractor when when a 22 Pheasant tail is not catching any attention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nymph! One of the best tied nymphs I've seen, Bluegill and even bass love it. I haven't tried it on trout yet, but I'm sure they will too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from trout flies Ordering online was very simple and efficient. The product had been recommended to me by a fellow fly fisherman. I used the flies I bought this week and caught fish! That's a win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Catches all the fish I've only used this fly once, after 3 trips not catching anything at all to the creek in question. It was too shallow to used my bead head wooly buggers, so I thought I'd give this a try since it still had some flash. I had a bite or a catch on probably 80% of my casts, though they were all just sunfish. Still, better than nothing, and the only thing they wanted all evening that I threw at them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fly This fly is my go-to nymph for the tailwaters in Arkansas. The flashback elicits more frequent strikes in the stained water. I typically use size 14, but as the current picks up I'll go to a size 12. I've been surprised by the durability of these flies as well. I've landed close to 3-dozen rainbow on the last few of these flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly This fly is the standard hares ear with a flashback added. From what I can tell it is tied well.
