Bunny leech

Hook: Size 4-8 (here, a 4XL size 6)
Thread: color to match pattern
Tail: Zonker strip
Flash (optional): Any suitable flash material (here, pearl Flashabou)
Body: Cross-cut zonker strip wrapped forward

I use 3/0 thread for this pattern because it allows me to really crank down and secure the zonker strips. I'm showing basic black and basic white, but there are other useful colors (maroon, peach for carcass or flesh fly, etc.)
