The Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear has the same concept as the Hare's Ear original however with the inclusion of gold ribbing this pattern also has visible wings protruding from it. The shaggy appearance of this fly is of utmost importance as it is this quality that deceives the wary trout into believing it is a living organism. The Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear imitates a wide variety of aquatic life and resembles a wide variety of nymphs as they shed their shucks.
This is a great stand by fly for me. If nothing is taking I usually use this fly and it works great,
