The Mess

This Hare's Ear variant was a real producer for over the last few seasons.  The pattern can not be any simpler to tie!

Hook:  Diachi 1150
Bead: Black glass
Ribbing:  Gold or copper wire
Body: Light brown hare's mask
Abdomen:  Dark brown hares's mask

There is nothing special about this fly in it's appearance, but it is a consistent producer.  It does a good job imitating caddis larva found in most waters.  The fly when dry is quite a mess (hence the name) but it takes on a much different look when wet.  My general nymph box is never without a dozen of these.
