Fly Candy

Managed to strip down one of Rowlands old flies last night and turned it into a double bunny. I mean it would have been a sacrilege tossing away a perfectly good hook with an awesome front head already in place.

I first added a mono loop to the back of the hook near the bend.Then added two white rabbit zonker strips 120mm. Then several strands of red krinkle flash. Then added one dubbing brush loop of red arctic fox fur.

Then added four hot orange grizzly microbarb saddles and lastly added a collar of red UV polar chenille to finish off the fly. Considering I didn't have much hook shank to work with I'm happy with the end product. Out of all of my red/white flies this last season,this style double bunny was the most productive pattern.
