Tying Instructions: 1) Debarb hook and slide cone head on, and stick on a three inch zonker strip on the hook with about an inch sticking out past the hook bend.

2)Put the hook in the vise and wrap the hook shank with lead wire starting even with the hook point all the way to the cone.

3)start your thread on the lead wire and wrap it to the bend of the hook. Part the rabbit fur to expose the skin and tie it down with 8 to 10 thread wraps

7)Tie off everything at the cone head and tie in two rubber legs per side, trim the legs between the bend of the hook and the end of the tail, then dub the thread wraps and tie off.
Presentation Tips: for carp crawl across the bottom or short strips

you can also dead drift it, or just blind cast with it

it works its best on the bottom
