I’ve tied and sold this pattern for awhile now. Similar to most leech patterns with a few variances.
I place a 6mm brass bead on the outer tube and tie nutria against it. This creates a wonderful prop while keeping materials to an absolute minimal. The rabbit is triangle tapered to create a lot of movement and force the pattern to ride true. Very helpful on a tube fly! The people who have fished these have remarked how easy to cast they were for a decent size rabbit fly.
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
