I struggle to take good pictures of flies, but here are a few of the rubber legged hare's ear I have been using. This one is tied in olive, but I tie them in a variety of colors. My favorite colors are olive, tan, and rust. I like the white legs because I can see the fly easier, making strike detections much simpler.

So they take something that big, with protruding legs? Cool fly - thanks for the pics. I saw a fly in a magazine the other day that used vinyl rib for "rubber legs" - could it be more durable? It is definitely easier to tie in knots - for hoppers, etc.

Nice vise too...

those flies are a 10 and a 12. i fish them as small as 14. the white rubber legs really help spot the fly, and the fish seem to react well to this pattern.

i would stick to rubber for legs...more motion than vinyl.

John,

I stumbled across your blog the other day and I have to say congrats on the highway cone.

Second I want to thank you for posting the flies you are catching fish on. I just started carp fishing in the last month (just found them in a nearby lake while taking my 2 yr old son picnicing) and found some BIG grass carp. I have hooked 2, but landed 0. I am still debating fly selection for them.

I don't know of anyone has passed on this tip, but if you are looking for a cheap lifetime supply of rubber legs, go no further than your local walmart. 1 bungee cord can supply a ton of rubber legs. Just slit it open and cut to length. You can dye them any color by breaking open a sharpie and dropping it and the legs into a container of warm water. Sharpies are also great for banding the legs.

Thanks again for the postings.
