…a Bead Head G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph. Not to be forgotten. Like your Master Card, don’t leave home without one. The G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph has caught so many steelhead for me that if I was to go to the Rogue River with just one fly, it would be a Bead Head G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph. Under low, clear water conditions and a bright November sun this 29 inch or so Rogue River steelhead made his choice and grabbed this rather pathetic looking Hare’s Ear nymph. Makes one wonder, just how important is the bead head component to the fly? Granted it adds weight to the fly, but does it also add “a bite me” stimulus to the fish as well?
