Hook: #2 2456 Daichii.
Thread: 3/0 Thread (color to match body).
Eye: 7/32 Spirit River Dazl Eyes.
Tail: Straight cut rabbit strip 1 1/2 times the hooks shank in orange, white or black.
Mono Loop: 20# mono.
Body: Cross cut rabbit strip.
1. Tie on the 7/32 Dazl Eyes above the hook point.
2. Pierce the hide side of a straight cut rabbit (zonker) strip the same
distance from the end of the zonker strip as the same distance from the point
of the hook to the bend.
3. Cut a 1″ length of 20# mono and tie down on one side behind the eyes.
Extend the mono out to the same distance that is equal to the distance
between the hook point and the bend. Bend the mono back around through the
rabbit fur at this point and tie in on the other side of the original tie in
point forming a mono loop.
4. Tie in cross cut rabbit strip hide down at a 45 degree angle. Palmer
the rabbit strip to the eyes. At the eye wrap the rabbit strip in a figure
8 fashion around the Dazl Eyes. Once done with the figure 8 continue
palmering the rabbit strip down the shank overlapping the previous wrap.
Tie down the rabbit strip one half eye length from the hook’s eye.
5. Super glue the thread.
