Tail: Brown hackle fibers
Ribbing: Gold tinsel
Body: Natural rabbit-not plucked *
Hackle: Formed by the long fibers of unplucked rabbit fur as it is wound on. *
* The phrase ‘unplucked rabbit fur’ from the Trout recipe listing refers to not removing guard hairs from the dubbing as it is wound on the fly, but rather leaving them intact to create a ‘buggy’ appearance.
** The Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear dry fly is on Trout Plate No. 15.
