RE:Bonito Bunnie Fly

Sully,

Nice fly! I just learned how to tie this one, except I learned to use a rabbit strip for the tail. Is that bucktail I see on the end of yours?

A trick for those interested: tie the tail (whatever the material) and flash first and then add the mono loop, pulling the tail up through the loop. This has the effect of keeping the tail suspended way up above the bend. With rabbit tail, it eliminates 100% of any tangles with the hook. Not sure what effect it would have on deer hair.

Best,

Al
