Dumbell Fat Head Zonker

This has enough weight to use with a conventional or spinning rod and I use this fly to catch flounder in the Texas gulf with my conventional gear. It is also a great fly to use with heavier fly rods (8wt and up) just because of the excess weight. If you lighten up the weight, you could use it with a lighter rod. This will imitate a small baitfish, and moves incredibly in the water.

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.
