Tony Jay, shows you how to tie two popular fly patterns, the Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear and the Adam's dry fly.
Both of these great flies, the GRHE as a nymph and the Adam's as dry fly are tried and tested patterns that will work on all manner of fish from brown trout, rainbow trout and grayling but of course also on many other species.
The GRHE is to be fished as a nymph under the surface if the water, it pretty much imitates most of the trout's food items and that's why it's so successful.
The Adam's dry fly is a kind of panacea for most anglers, it kind of covers everything in the Olive or upwing family and so it's generic profile makes it a number one choice.
The great thing about these patterns is the fact that you won't be needing any fancy materials to be able to create them, these flies are simple to tie with minimal materials and yet they are still very effective.
