I tie the Bunnies the same way a STL69 does. I use mine on pike so they don't tend to last very long with those toothy critters.
I tie them quite long, up to 8 inches long, so to keep the longer "tails" working/moving, I glue 3 to 4 long (4 inches+)Moose Body hairs onto the rabbit strip before tying it on, zonker style. This keeps a better profile and makes the fly swim better. An alternate if heavy mono, works equally well.
