Tying a Gold Ribbed Olive Hare’s Ear Nymph with Davie McPhail by Davie McPhail

Davie McPhail ties up this classic nymph pattern in his own unique style. This is a darker version than most seen in North America, but it has a pleasing appearance and I’m sure that trout will easily agree. I’d love to try out a bead head version using a black bead in place of the classic gold.
