Bunny Baitfish Weedguard

This is a step by step tutorial on how to tie a fly that I call the bunny baitfish. Included in this fly is a simple single strand weedguard that can be adapted to almost any fly. This fly is tied on an eagle claw 254 hook that make these very cost effective even if you lose a few, but it can be tied on any long shanked hook. You can also match your local forage by varying the width and color of the rabbit strips. I have used this fly to catch bass, pike, and even large crappie.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
