Tying Bunny Leeches with Scarlet Begonias and Red Hook Pilsner











Hooks: bait models on clearance from Cabela's; $2.88 for pack of 25; size #1 extra wide gap; pretty strong.

Eyes: from River City Fly Shop, courtesy John Montana.

Rabbit fur: $4.96 for a big slobbery bag of chunks. Have to cut the strips yourself. But, $4.99 would otherwise get you one bag of zonker strips.

Beer: weekly craft of the month at Andy's.

Song: she wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls

Purpose: to watch these flies pulse in clear water over rock and strip them by cruisers only to cause the lead carp in the pod to break off at a ninety intent on something.

Looking at these pics. I think they are too bright. Next wave will be all drab. Goby.

They would be loved by my rabbit strip almost exclusive use for carp middle boy. He catches fish here on 4" flies all the time. Nice-you all should be ready.

Man, you get some pretty cool colors when you buy by the chunk. Never seen anything like that green yellow color, that is really cool looking.

Sweet bunnies. I know some large brown trout that would love to eat them.

Do you need to add extra weight to get the octopus hooks to go tits up?

Neat flies!I'd like to see how those eagle claw's hold up when a carp eats em though!
I'm heading to Boyne city in a few weeks [on a family trip], and I hope to be out on the lake(Traverse bay or BeaverIsland if it's not too cold!) chasing my favorite fish:) I would like to know- if the secrets can be disclosed- what flies you use while on the "third coast".
I've checked out Kevin moorlock's flies, but i would like to get more than one anglers opinion on flies for these beasts.
Exellent blog!Very good writing, I particularly love your carp posts:)
I find myself checking it daily!
Tight lines,
Ben
