RE:Bonito Bunnie Fly

I tied my 1st Bonito Bunny last night. It came out ok. But I noticed 2 things:

1. The hair on the rabbit fur falls out a lot. Anyone else notice rabbit fur shedding easily? Maybe I got some cheap stuff but I don't think so.

2. I was following the Page Rogers recipe and at the last minute, getting ready for the palmering of the last bunny strip up the shank I notice she says to use a <b>crosscut</b> strip. So I did. Wow, that really made a difference since the hair flares backward as you wrap a crosscut piece.

Just my observations.
