Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear Nymph

Whilst hares ear patterns do not appear to represent any particular insect, it has been generally accepted for 150 years or so that they are taken as the nymph of the Olive Dun or other similar upright winged flies, including the Lake Olive. Fished in or near the surface, it is considered by many as one of the best imitations of a hatching olive.
