I’ve got a small box of bitty rabbit strips that I dip into from time to time, but the more big rabbit patterns I tie, the fuller that box is getting. Rich is offering this micro streamer to help cull the pile a little bit. This video takes you through the steps of tying his gold variation of the pattern.

Its been quite a while since I’ve posted one of Richard Strolis’ flies on the page. love the name of the pattern and the massive amount of weight included here. Tungsten bead, a bit of lead and an acetate body will see this fly sink like a boulder. Nice heavy dubbed collar here and the shiny wingcase. I’ll be tying some today for my weekend box.
