Yellow Ice Rabbit
Many New Zealand salmon flies (or feathered lures) use rabbit pelt instead of hackle feathers. Dyed rabbit pelt is inexpensive and readily available and is easier to tie than a feathered version. The Yellow Ice Rabbit salmon fly uses natural rabbit pelt and gets the yellow colouring from a yellow hackle collar and yellow Estaz body. Stripes of Mylar along the sides for added flash are always good on these gaudy salmon flies. Note also that on all of these salmon flies painted eyes have been added for extra realism.
