Dirty Olive Zonker

Zonkerflies are popular and a an "easy-to-tie-fly". The wing is made by a strip of skin often rabbit or squirrel for smaller flies and it creates a very lively and pulsating fly while fishing and retrieving. In this video we once again have teamed up with our swedish friend Håkan Karsnäser who demonstrates how easy a zonker can be tied - the Dirty Olive Zonker can be variated in size and color from large flourecent patterns to small discrete mini-zonkers.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
