Steelhead Fly Pattern… Bunny Hex by unknown

A local fly fishing friend brought this pattern on a trip last year and it was dynamite, he had picked-up the pattern at a local fly fishing club meeting (West Michigan Hacklers).  I have made a few changes from his original, peacock back instead of swiss straw, black eyes instead of brass and a better hook.  It is still dynamite and easy to tie and has become mandatory equipment in my boat for steelhead.  Kevin Morlock
