One of my fav numfs ;)

Post by fly_fischa » Sun Feb 07, 2016 3:50 pm

I've caught trout all over the world with these and wouldn't be caught without a few dozen on any stream. The old hares ear nymph or as my NZ'der mates call it hares ear numf ;)
I experimented with the ribbing and subbed the usual dark copper wire I use with Semperli Glint Nymph in Rust. It's a fine flat plaited tinsel that has a nice variegated effect when it's twisted into a tight rope. This is a short shank stout curved TMC 2499Spbl in a 14 which should give an idea of how fine/subtle the flash is...

Yeah, nah, looks like it would do the buznuz.
Everything a nymph of this type should be- a mess on a hook with some subtle flash of ribbing.
Typical bit of Aussie over the top extravagance with the wingcase/legs and hackle fibres for a tail........ but it should still work. :P

Karsten, that is just super hairy. And some killer pics. This ruffian would kill on waters I haunt. Beautiful. Looks just like our east coast March brown nymphs.
