Another Icelandic take on the Bugger; added the rabbit up front for a bit more action. Weight as desired; left this one light to throw at frustrated stillwater spawners in the shallows. Title should read Nobbler - stupid autocorrect.

hook - Dai Riki 700 #4
thread - UTC 140 black
tail - marabou black
flash - Flashabou pearl
butt - chenille chartreuse
rib - small wire silver
front body - chenille black
hackle - hen black
collar - rabbit black
eyes - bead chain stainless

mash barb, start thread; tie in eyes
