Wonderful article-I'm brand new to making a fly of any kind. I purchase commercial tied jigs primarily for fishing
Coho Salmon in the Northwest, Chehalis river system. The Bloody Zonker has the color & heavier body Coho like.
I will be casting 0ne quarter oz. round ball jigs. This pattern will be tied on 1/ 0 2/0 jig hooks, the water is typically stained and fast moving. I may improvise a little because of the hook size.

Anyway - thanks again for a great tutorial on the tying of this fly. Will let you know how it works. Al Bahr
