Half 'n Half Hare
tied by wayne SW/MO
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Hook-Mustad CK52S or 33903
Thread-Uni color to match wing.
Throat-Red Streamer hair, if needed.
Tear Mender or Plobond
Tying Instructions: Tie in Eye at hump in hook shank. I like the 33903 or the CK52S because it keeps my eyes consistant and it allow for a tighter eye. I normaly tie up several hooks with eye and the epoxy them.
Cut a strip of rabbit for the wing that is 1/2 again as long as the shank. Set the strip against the shank and find a point to pierce that will allow the strip to lay along the shank and reach the eye. Pierce the hide so that it lays flat on top of the shank, tie down at the eye.
Cut a strip of rabbit for the belly. this shoul reach slightly beyond the bend. Tie it down at the eye, add throat if needed and build a head.
Go back and glue the two strips together with Tear Mender of Plobond.
Presentation Tips: Can be stripped or fished on a dead drift, both have been effective.
