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

The Gold Ribbed Olive Hare's Ear Nymph is an extremely popular fly. The reason for this is because this fly represents the natural food source of many freshwater fish. Its 'buggy' profile and its ability to be used all-year-round makes the Gold Ribbed Olive Hare's Ear Nymph a great fly box filler.

All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie a Gold Ribbed Olive Hare's Ear Nymph, with the guidance of Davie McPhail.




Materials Used:
Hook: Fulling Mill All-Purpose Medium size 14 Thread: Uni-8/0 Olive or Black Underbody: Copper Wire or Lead Tail: Dyed Olive Pheasant Tail Fibres Body: Dyed Olive Hare's Ear Dubbing Thorax Cover and Legs: Dyed Olive Pheasant Tail Fibres Thorax: Dyed Olive Hare's Ear Dubbing

Additional materials: Additionally, Davie made use of Varnish, which he applied to the thread after completing the fly.
