Rabbit Fry by Magnus Nygren. 3rd place in the Fly Tying Masters Round 2. What a great little pattern from Magnus Nygren again this month. This is a fabulous fry imitation. It the pattern that no angler should be without this season if heading out to target fry feeders - it really is that good.
It may not look the best imitation, but it doesn't have to, because the impression this extremely well thought out pattern gives of a small fish is scary. The rabbit strip has been cut to a taper that looks just like the body of a fry and with the discreet trigger points of orange dubbing and fins it's a real winner. The head finishes the shape perfectly and will create disturbance if pulling the fly - just add floatant.
It is a great style of pattern to try for sea trout also!
Well done Magnus.
