Bunny Dun

Cannon’s Bunny Dun Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Bunny Dun is a killer little mayfly pattern developed by Jim Cannon.  The Bunny Dun imitates a mayfly dun stuck on the surface film of the water.  The Bunny Dun is a seriously deadly little pattern and has been one of my favorites for many years.  The dense Rabbit fur traps air and floats high, making this pattern very easy to see on the water.  The Bunny Dun can be tied in many colors.  Dun, Olive, Black and Tan have been the best colors for me.  This is a must have mayfly pattern in any trout fly box!
