Rabbit Strips have long been a staple fly tying material for tyers around the world. Many people think of freshwater flies when they think of rabbit strips, but these strips can be used to tie a variety of different streamers. These strips offer a flowing, full profile to any streamer and are great for freshwater and saltwater flies alike. Hareline’s selection includes a large variety of colors and styles. These Magnum strips are thick, full, and offer great durability when frayed or worn. If you’re looking for the fullest rabbit strip to tie your next ‘big bug’, try Hareline’s Magnum Rabbit Strips.
Patterns and Tying Techniques - Typically, Magnum Rabbit Strips are used for tails on larger streamers. They can also be used for dubbing loops. The strips can be tied in, palmered, or wrapped to add dimension and in-water action to any streamer.
