Pattern Description
The Bunny Dun has been popularized throughout the Rocky Mountain region by Jim Cannon of the Blue Quill Angler in Evergreen, Colorado. Snowshoe rabbit foot hair is used for the wing as its' inherent flotation properties allow for both realism and sparsness in the pattern. I like to use a goose biot body on patterns like this if for no other reasons than the detail they add as well as the opportunity to show the technique used to apply them. The Bunny Dun is a great floater, has a very realistic silhouette and is quite durable. Tie a few up and give them a try.
