Critique on Bead Headed Hare's Ear Nymph

Recommended Posts

Sorry to her about the cell phone. Glad it caught a fish, tho.

I hear you about the starting over, lol. It's trying to build the muscle memory that's a painn.

What is used for the wing case here? Or, in general what is good to use for a Hare's Ear Nymph wing case?

 

I tied a few Hare's Ear Nymphs ten years or so ago when I started tying, but haven't done one since. I'd like to add a dozen or so to my fly boxes and figure I ought to give a go at one of fly fishing's standard patterns.

I have had good results using peacock herl.

I used pheasant tail for the wing case on the hare's ear. I've also tried mottled turkey for the wing case but like the pheasant tail better.
