This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is Scott Sanchez’s Double Bunny streamer.
Sanchez states he first thought about this fly in 1988 on a trip to Belize. His inspiration for the fly were two other flies they were using, a Kiwi Muddler and a FisHair Cuda Fly. He wondered what might happen “if I put together the pulsating action of rabbit fur and the undulation motion of a ‘cuda fly?”
Back home in Jackson, WY he saw large trout chasing smaller ones and his thought about a “super barracuda” came to mind. He sat down at the vise and the first Double Bunny was created.
It was an effective fly and won the Jackson Hole One-Fly contest for three straight years in the early 1990s.
Scott ties many variations of the fly in 3 – 5″ versions using many colors. I’m sure it still works today!
Enjoy…go fish, stay safe!
