The Bunny Leech is a pattern that has been around for a long time. It wasn't until I saw Pete's (@Blueriverflies) Spawn Head version that it caught my interest and made me want to tie it and fish it. With any pattern, I love to over-complicate it and add more flash and materials. I really wanted to make this look even more minnow like by adding the white belly and speckled guinea, and who doesn't like flash on a minnow.
If you are using Blank Spawn Heads, there is a tutorial on how to paint them here:
So enjoy and tie some up. The fish cant resist them.
