Bunny Leech Light

I use this bunny leech the most for nymphing. I know it sounds weird, but this streamer works great for an attractor. I will drop a small midge behind this, and fish it under an indicator or even "euro nymph" it. Also, it is a great streamer for fishing with light rigs. This is easily casted with a 4wt, so it is great for small fish and small streams. Having no hide, makes this fly super light and easy to cast. I always keep some of these in the box with me no matter what river I fish. It has great movement with the bunny hair, and its a great attractor. Rabbit fur has many colors and is widely available at many fly shops, and its rather inexpensive compared to other natural materials. So this fly is a great fly for budge as well.

Here is a list of materials I used on this fly.
Hook: Umpqua U301 in size 10
Thread: UTC Ultra Thread 70 in Red
Fur: Magnum Rabbit Zonker in natural color
Head Cement: Solarez Bone Dry

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
