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
