As with probably most fly fisherman, given the choice of being able to us only one material to dress their flies with for the rest of their lives, it would have to be Rabbit zonker strips. Bar Raccoon zonker, Rabbit zonker has to be the most effective natural material to fish with. These Bunny bugs are super easy to construct, super light to cast, even with a 5wt and fun to fish with.
I tie this in plain black also and fish with it down in the Bay for Bartailed gurnards (Flatheads). So you could say this is another one of those cross over flies I like to throw around.
