Pattern Description
This cool little pattern comes from Greater Yellowstone Flyfishers up in Bozeman, Montana and is sort of a dressed up Hare's Ear with all the bells and whistles. I've made a few needless modifications to the pattern here, subbing a Mirage Flash rib for the flashback over the peacock herl thorax and a copper bead in place of the usual gold. I just like the mirage rib better than plain gold wire and the copper bead gets a nod because gold beads remind me of those rappers with the gold teeth and that freaks me out a little. Tie yours however you like.
