Fishing Strategies:

We recommend fishing a Hare’s Ear as an attractor in a traditional nymphing rig.  You cannot go wrong fishing a two-fly rig consisting of a Hare’s Ear with a Mercury Pheasant Tail or another smaller Baetis nymph dropped beneath it.  This tandem set up imitates both Caddis and Baetis, two of the most important food sources during the spring and summer season.  Vary your size depending on the mayfly nymph you want to imitate.  In smaller sizes, it makes a great dropper in a dry-dropper rig.
