Default Bunnies

After the success of my secret fly, I started making a hybrid of zonker strips and marabou. They look great (well out of the water). These are bigger flies as well. Pike and musky should love these guys. Personally I like marabou over bunny. They become larger profiles and tend to breathe better in the water. However, you can make a tail of marabou like you can a bunny strip. These are all tied on a 1/0 or larger hook with most being 3/0. Under the tail I tie a good amount of flash and well I put eyes on almost everything. I also add a small amount of a storm suspend strip to the shaft of the hook giving it a bit more weight. This helps get the fly to sink and reach several feet easily.
