Hares Ear Sedgehogs sometimes called olive halfhogs. Imitating caddis the Hares Ear Sedgehog works exceptionally well in the Autumn months. Try an Hares Ear Sedgehog on the point fly with a floating line, this is the classic way to fish Hares Ear Sedgehogs. Put them on the top dropper when using a floater. Use two wets on the middle dropper and point. Daiwl Bach works well, directly behind the Hares Ear Sedgehog.
When retrieving the Hares Ear Sedgehog make short jerky pulls. With floatant on the wing, the fly is pulled just below the surface, then pops up through the surface again. This dropping down and popping up really triggers trout.
In a calm or very slight ripple on a stillwater, try to fish an Hares Ear Sedgehog slowly as point fly with a team of buzzers behind it.
Finally although a dry fly the Hares Ear Segehogs can be fished on sinking lines!. Put the Hares Ear Sedgehog on the point with a couple of buzzers/nymphs on the droppers. Let the line sink; the Orange Sedgehog will be the last thing to go under. When you retrive, you will give the flies a very attractive diving then rising action, like a washing line rig but slightly less bouyant but still highly effective.
Already catching. Nuff sed.
