Presentation Tips: I first saw this pattern in a fly shop on the Grand River in Ontario. Seemed too big at the time for browns but I tied up a few anyways and have has pretty good success with them for largemouth and other warm water dwelling species. I'm sure that other bait fish could be imitated by switching the colors of the rabbit fur around.
