Hare's Ear Nymph on a jig hook

That is a really top-shelf nymph tie. Good job.

Found this on the Bakslengen blog.  With a squirrel wing and body, save your good hackle for something that’ll float for more than one cast; should work as a drowned bug though. 

hook - WFC Model 4 #10
thread - Uni 8/0 rusty dun
rib - x-small wire gold
body -  dubbing squirrel (grey used here)
hackle - grizzly
wing/head- squirrel tail


Regards,
Scott

Usually in the salt no problem with 9-10wt.    5-6wt trouting and no trouble.   Not heavey enough to cast very far with spin rig, maybe 4# line but never get that lite....kinda big though 1/0-2/0.  In still water make sweeps and drops.  I was surprised how well they worked.  

These CutiePies have lead heads so castable with spin rig.   The flies are lighter than 1/16 oz.  and have cast the lil one on whippy stick.

Simple to do just rob the hardware off small spinner bait and give it a try.  Carefull don’t make the fly too bushy will hinder the blade to turn.  I worried about the fly spinning but didn’t.    The fly up front has to be a keel though.  Thought about tying a mono loop on the back of other patterns and attach/remove blades with the split ring. 🎣
