Piker bunny (swap entry)

This is my pike swap entry. It's very similar to the bunny leech designed by Barry Reynolds. The only differences are the use of clouser eyes for weight and the use of ice chenille without the palmered hackle. Here's the recipe:

Hook: Streamer, 2XL, size 1/0
Thread: 3/0, color to match pattern
Weight: Dumbell eyes
Tail/overbody: Rabbit strip, tied in Zonker style
Body: Ice chenille
Throat: A few strands of flash, color to match pattern


The swap entry was the white fly pictured in the middle. This fly is effective for several other species as well. The chartruese bunny on the left is great for largemouth, and the black bunny on the right is a pretty good night fly for stripers.
