Bunny flies are commonly used for Tarpon here in Florida. Rabbit hair moves in the water even when standing still. Local Tarpon fishing is generally in 8’+, not 3′ like in the Florida Keys. Bunny Flies are ideal because they can get down quickly when presented to a school of moving Tarpon.
This Tarpon Bunny Fly is a classic. These colors were commonly used in the past for daytime Tarpon fishing by many of the historic fly fisherman. I got surprised once on this by a large Snook in deep water. Tied on a stout Gamakatsu SL 12S #2/0 hook. I epoxy the thread wraps and head of this fly. It can be attached to your leader with either a loop knot or snelled. There is a mono loop in the back to prevent the bunny fouling.
