I really do not know what the fly is called said Mike.  I will call it the Red Head Rabbit.  The Red Head Rabbit was tied for me last night at the Branson MTFA meeting by Michael Marriott.  We were talking about our  a resent trips to Roaring River.  He told me about this fly.  He said that it worked for him all day.  Any way he fished the fly –  it caught fish.  I had him sit down to tie it for me.  Here it is.  Simple and easy to tie.
