Fly Candy

The double bunny gurglebug tube fly can be fished with a floating or intermediate line. Probably best used with an intermediate on slow flowing rivers. Cast this across and up stream and allow the line to sink through the drift. A couple of sharp long strips gets the fly down around 2 feet as it swings across back towards you. Very visible, and has plenty of movement to entice the most lethargic of snotrockets.

Simon,
This looks great, but I have stopped using rabbit cause it casts like a wet brick. What weight rod are you throwing these with.

9" #10wt rod James. I understand what your saying.I've become so used to using rabbit and raccoon zonkers these days that I don't really notice it anymore,Its not to everyones taste and I don't always fsh with rabbit but I do love the movement it gives off under the water.

10 weight wow. I throw all my big flies with an eight weight. Mostly because a big fish is 7# here and a ten weight would reduce the fight.

Tite lines buddy.
