Three Flies Using Hares Ears Dubbing with Larry Prowse


Larry Prowse was our guest tyer on Monday night! The theme was three nymphs using hares ear dubbing. The 17 fly tyers learned to properly use a hares mask to select dubbing for the patterns. All three patterns will be very useful out on the rivers. The Peeping Caddis is a very innovative pattern that runs upside down. The Hares Ear Prince Nymph has been a real winner out on our Eastern Slopes rivers and the Guides Choices Hares Ear is and excellent suggestive pattern using a soft hackle collar! Thanks Larry for a very informative fly tying session! Special thanks to Doug Pullen for the pictures from tonight's session!

Next Monday is our final session of the season. The theme will be micro leeches. See you then!
