The Story

Trout, look out! Take the most productive and popular nymph there is, add some soft hackle for movement and life, and then put a tungsten bead on it to get it down fast, and you have the makings of a wicked good nymph pattern. A must-have nymph pattern for every box. Color, Hare's Ear.

Sizes: 10, 12, 14, 16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi use fly I like fishing a soft hackle fly. It’s very productive and relaxing. Putting a tungsten head on my point fly really helps to get the cast of flies down when the fish are staying deep in the water column. The gold rib hares ear ... needs no new accolades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flybox Essential This well-made fly should be in every flybox. Swing it as a wet or drop it and you'll get action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent nymph This little guy is amazing. Worked great when the river was a bit high due to an interesting October snow storm. Gets down to where the fish are quick.
