From Tim:

My dad, Harold Tollett, got me started fly fishing in 1962. I started working for Walton Powell, of Powell Rod fame, in 1968 tying flies, and also helped build fiberglass rods and rod components. In 1977, I moved to Dillon Montana, and began working for Al Troth guiding on the Beaverhead and Big Hole Rivers. In 1980 my wife, Teresa, and I opened Frontier Anglers.
Over theyears I have been fortunate to travel and fish some of the world's finest fly fishing waters. From Alaska, Belize, New Zealand, Chile, Bahamas, Argentina, and Canada, to most all of the western states. I have had the true pleasure of guiding some of our world leaders such as President Carter, as well as other famous people.

This particular fly is a time tested, proven pattern for moving large bonefish, as well as permit. It works extremely well in the Bahamas, but we have used the Abaco Bunny in Mexico, Florida and Belize with excellent results. Tarpon like the larger sizes. It's a fly that is easy to tie and easy to cast.

Recipe:

  • Hook: TMC 800s in 2, 4, 6, 8
  • Thread: Flat A Pink
  • Eyes: Size 5/32" gold Real Eyes w/ brigh orange stick on eyes
  • Tail: Tan Rabbit with 3 Lt clear/hot orange Wiggle Legs
  • Body: Tan Rabbit, dubbed
  • Weed Guard: .22" Mason hard mono

Dave was born and raised in Great Falls and has spent his life fishing the waters of southwest Montana. He began his guiding career in 1985 on the Henry’s Fork, the South Fork of the Snake and the Teton in Idaho. In 1995, he moved closer to home when he guided on the famous Montana rivers around Yellowstone Park. In 2001 Dave returned to his home waters of the Missouri, which had been the river that captured his imagination since he first fished it as a youngster in 1971.

Up until the late 80’s, the Missouri River had yet to be discovered by the fishing magazines and the few outfitters that guided there held it as closely guarded secret. Dave has studied and fished it intently his entire angling life. Since this homecoming, he has been guiding on the Missouri in the summer and on the rivers of southern Chile and Argentina in the winter. Dave is also a nationally recognized fly-tier and his patterns are produced and sold by Idylwilde Flies.
