Everbody seems to be in zonker-mood these days. Maybe that´s because fishing in the sea is the only option for a flyfisherman right now. Zonkers are really easy to tie and a good start for beginners. Besides that, you can always catch something on them. This style of fly will also be excellent for hooking big browns in early season as well.
This pattern is very easy to tie and do not demand a lot of expensive materials. It originates from Iceland. It consists of hackle stems and then hackle is used as body. You can put in som cdc, flash materials or as in this picture some arctic fox. These ones is tied on a double hook intented for salmon, but it`ll work just as well on a single hook. Go ahead and tie some!
