    Sweet, I tie that same pattern pretty often, but use arctic fox rather than the buck tail. It doesn't keep as big of a profile but, it seems to have better movement with the bunny.

    I used red fox tail for the belly and the back of the one on the left, calf tail (yellow belly, brown/yellow back) for the one on the right. Most of the bulky look comes from tied in pectoral fins and dorsal clumps of rabbit fur.

    I highly recommend Clouser's book if you like his patterns. He's a great teacher (I learned how to tie from him in PA) and his book is extremely well written and photographed. The patterns above don't follow the recipe precisely.

    Hook Mustad 3366 or similar
    Barbell eyes
    Tail: rabbit fur strip pierced by the hook and tied in just behind the eyes
    Pectoral fins: just behind eyes on each side, rabbit fur
    Belly: (top of hook) calf tail
    Additional belly clumps of rabbit fur, one tied just behind the eyes, one just in front of them
    Finished by final back of calf tail
    Flashabou as desired (placed beneath the final back of calf tail...I didn't use it)
