Step 2

Make a hollow body with rabbit dubbing. Start at the front, tie the dubbing up to the bend, then add another dubbing layer above it. Dubbing should cover half the hook or less.Where the dubbing ends, tie an olive rabbit strap and make a hackle towards the front. Leave some space for the head and the thread lock. You can try doing this with the head you will use. I used olive Two Tone rabbit with black tips. View more...

Comb the hackle so as to work with the back, that we’ll then set down. Try placing the head, it should fittight so it sticks perfectly.
