...or try a conehead
I'm new to this board but thought I'd offer my $.02...
I've had succeess with freshwater bass on this fly buy using a gunmetal colored brass conehead and simply tying the rabbit strip in Zonker style (palmered down w/ fine gold wire or mono). The brass makes the fly fall seductively slow in the water. A drop of zap-a-gap between the hide and the hook increase it's durability.
Also a great trout fly tied on a size 8 hook!
