The Rainbow Bunny Leech Fly Pattern Tutorial

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.
