    This rabbit strip leech is tied in the same style as the squirrel strip patterns but on a 3x long hook due to the longer hair that rabbits possess compared to the pine squirrel.

    This fly works incredibly well presented vertically under the indicator or with a strip retrieve. The more erratic the retrieve the better the response. Enjoy....

    Like it!

    That hook looks "bronzed" John. What is it?

    It would work great as a top fly under an indicator, with a heavier bottom fly to pull the eye down to turn it into a horizontal pattern. The bunny would provide it enough movement that even sitting vertical versus horizontal in the water column that the fish would still curiously take it as it sat neutrally buoyant in the water column.
