Bassano Possum/Hares Ear Nymph (Barbless)


Tassie flyfishing guide Christopher Bassano on his Possum/Hare's ear nymph...
This is a top dropper fly when fish are feeding on mayfly duns or nymphs. Wherever mayflies are present, this is a great fly. It sinks slowly and represents the lighter colored nymph very well. This fly should be fished in a team as per the Claret Nymph and at least nine feet from the end of your fly line as the top dropper. Barbless.

Our View
The bugginess in this nymph and it's slender profile make it deadly on mayfly feeders.
Available in sizes #12, #14, and #16.
