Purple & Black Rabbit Strip Tube Fly by Nicholas 2017

Here is yet another version of the many rabbit strip tube flies you will see that are deadly when fished for steelhead and many species of salmonids. This Purple and black version of the fly silly deadly but I suppose that is a case of stating the obvious because all flies that contain rabbit strip are also deadly.

I still plan on featuring other color variations of this same pattern (I hope) so our subscribers will have the option of watching each video to see what kind of stories I tell or not watching all of the silly rabbit strip videos since once you have seen how to tie one fly you can probably think up your own color combinations and get on with it on your own.

But as always, I wish you well and hope you enjoy tying and fishing these flies.

Here goes . . . . .

Tube: Pro Sportfisher Micro Tube or medium classic tube
Hook guide: Purple large
Hook option: Owner #2 straight eye or OPST Swing hook #2
Rabbit StripBlack barred Purple
Hackle: Black Schlappen or marabou
Cone: Pro Sportfisher Ultra Sonic Disc Gunsmoke Metallic

I hope you see possibilities in this fly’s color hue and composition
