Double Bunny Diver

 
tied by hampe998
Fly Type: Deer Hair,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
Back Hook: Mustad 3366 #2
Front Hook: Mustad 3366#1/0
Thread: 6/0 for body, GSP for deer hair
Tail: Magnum Zonker strips glued together with tear mender
Flash: Mirage Flashabou
Hook connection: 30 pound test braid
Gills: Red Zonker cut from strip and put in dubbing loop
Head(top): Deer hair
Head(bottom): Magnum Zonker strip
Tying Instructions: Tie the back hook as you would tie any double bunny pattern. Secure to front hook with braided line. Tie in the white zonker facing backwards on the bottom of the hook. Form a dubbng loop, insert red zonker and cut the hide away. Wrap the loop forward forming the gills. Stack or spin a deer hair head taking care to form a nice collar which will help hide the connection. Trim the head, pull the white zonker forward and tie off. I put a few drops of super glue between the deer and zonker to help with durability. Glue eyes on and clip the front hook.

Presentation Tips: Haven't fished it yet. It rides real low in the surface.
