We tie all of our cormorant flies with the tips of rabbit fur and here's why:
It provides a consistent length time after time.
It is more durable therefore tends not to pull out.
It has loads more movement in the water.
It does not look "bulky" like some cormorants tied with Marabou.
We think it fishes better!
The Olive version is a fantastic pattern when used in conjunction with other flies such as a FAB or Booby. We have found this fly particularly successful when fishing clear water.
