The GR Hare's ear is the generic nymph pattern. It would be hard to find a nymph box anywhere in the world that didn't have some version of the hares ear. The original pattern is tied almost entirely from the naturally mottled and spikey hair found on the face and between the ears of the European hare. Today's hares ears come in a myriad of colors and with numerous additions. Some hares ears sport Flashabou or epoxy wing pads and others have rubber legs and bead heads.
