Use in an assortment of colors and using barred bunny strips make this thing look hot.

This is a Jerry Darkes pattern.
Tying Instructions: The most important part here is the the stiff mono to keep the tail from fouling. Use a needle to thread the mono through the bunny strip, then I melt the end to make sure it doesn't slide back through. Tie this in to the shank of the hook.
