Fly of the Month: July 2021

Orange Rabbit

Some lures are essential for the central Plateau. Along with Red Setter, Craig’s Night-time, Smelt, Woolly Bugger and floating Glo-Bug – the Orange Rabbit completes the basic selection.

An easy to tie pattern that works particularly well in Taupo’s rivers.
