Fly Candy

I've eventually got around to putting that zebra print rabbit pelt to good use over the last month with a number of double bunny semi jigging flies for the autumn. This was a very effective fly for me from late September through too ice over the last three years here on the island.
Again being the tight ass that I am I salvaged a couple of hooks from some old flies that were well used and given to me by my friend Rowland. Both these are much the same in construction. two rabbit zonkers tied onto the end of an upturned hook. Then a dubbing brush loop of black raccoon zonker fur followed by a pencil thick clump of either pink or yellow bucktail.

Another great idea. I'll have to tie a few up.
