Today we are doing our spin on a timeless classic the Guides Hares Ear Soft Hackle Nymph.  This pattern is a must have in most fly fishing guides boxes.  It is both quick and easy to tie, but also durable, and deadly effective.  These are some very important things to look at when choosing what pattern to tie.  With the materials substitutions we make here the possibilities become endless to your imagination.  This pattern can be fished anywhere you would fish a hares ear nymph, and can be tied unweighted as well.  We would love to see what you tie....

This pattern has been a go to for us this year.  The fish have especially loved the metallic colored beads paired with the shiny body of this fly and the fish can't resist.  We have combined a few different patterns into one with this one.  Perdigon style flies are becoming all the rage, and they flat out catch a lot of fish.  For us though there is nothing like a soft hackle nymph pattern.  combine the two of them, and you have an extremely beautiful fly along with one that is extremely effective.  This is a great addition to our...
