At the tying desk again,
During summer season I cast a lot of topwater flies.
Deer hair divers are favorite and add a great fun to your fly fishing.
I've got some variations of them.. with the splayed out feathers, long synthetic fibers and with a bunny tail as well.
The hides of those bunny strips seems to have a lot of stretch in them.. It seems this inhibits the diving capability. (Just a thought.)
The hides of finn racoon zonkers strips have less stretch, so there you go..
About a piece of 3 inch will do and have just the right movement you are looking for.
By the way.. if you're looking for a new very good deer hair packer, I can highly recommend ya this one:

Have a nice fishery!
