Zonker Baitfish

Here we will be tying a Zonker by myself in the classic baitfish colours. This is the first Zonker fly I tie on the channel, but trust me there will be more of them coming this winter. The baitfish colours in a streamer pattern are great option for both stream and lake fishing. This fly I've had good success fishing for Brown Trout and Seatrout. It's rather simple to tie and totally worth keeping a few in sizes 6-10 in your box when you go fishing.

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.
