Default No-foul Bunny

My friend Gary was tying these at the most recent club meeting and I thought I'd share his video.
I've also included a photo of Gary working hard for some fish

Rip: Very nice technique for tying a streamer where the tail won't get fouled in the hook! I see Gary takes his surf fishing very serious!

That's a heck of an idea, I'm already thinking of how I can apply to replacing furled bodies on some flies!

I may have to try this with a Reynold's Pike fly. It would be great to be able to do them without the weed gaurd. I say weed gaurd but it's real purpose is to keep the tail from wrapping the hook. Thanks for posting that.

So Clever!! I should have thought of that years ago. Does anyone have a link/picture/recipe of a "Snake" fly??? From what I remember of seeing on a while back it has a very long tail that may benefit from this technique.

The Tabory snake fly traditionally has a tail of ostrich herl, but saddle hackle has long been acceptable too.
If you were to tie the snake fly with a bunny tail you'd almost be required to use either the technique in the video or a "mono loop support" as the hydrolics of water passing around the deerhair head would foul the tail for sure.

BUNNY Mono loop support
I tie my mono loop support in a bit differently than pictured in this link
Instead on tying the loop in and then tying in the tail resting on the loop, I tie in my tail first and then tie the loop on top .
You then pull the tail up through the loop, trapping it in place.

Here's a traditional Tabory snake fly

Thanks RIP, what I saw must have been a hybridized version, either that or just mis-named because I'm pretty sure it was made with a bunny strip. You said they have been made with hackle feathers; that would be quite a pricey fly these days! By the way, the fad is not completely dead. I saw Steven Tyler wearing a quarter grizzly saddle on each side of his wig earlier this week on TV.
