Hare's Ear Whisper

I finally got out on the water a few times but I could not record the trips because I lost the charger to my camera.  I'm back in business now and I thought I would share what's been working this winter.  This first fly is actually a grayling pattern from Great Britain.  It is a little wisp of nothing tied on the first third of the hook shank.  It looks like a half finished fly but the trout were stupid over it.  I fished this fly off a dropper on my standard Czech nymph set-up and it out fished my favorite patterns 3:1.

Hare's Ear Whisper
Hook:  size 14 light wire standard length nymph hook
