If you were expecting some dear hair thing with cute little ears and leggs ...oh well.

Nothin fancy here just rabbit hair on a big 3/0 Gami spinner bait trailer hook.

Tying Instructions He He:

Lay down a good base of heavy thread and tie in the tail of pink zonker strip rabbit hair. Then wrap another good layer of thread down.

Tie in a strip of gray cross cut rabbit strip at the bend of the hook .

Wet your fingers and stroke the gray hair back from the hide strip.

Goop some fabric cement on the hook, and spread it around evenly and let it sit for a few seconds then palmer the rabbit strip forward evenly and tie off at the head.

I have found that with big rabbit strip flies like this the glue really helps. This is a very durable fly and will take repeated chewing.

Its heavy when its wet (like the proverbial wet sock) and I throw it with a 9 or a 10 wt rod.
