Zonker strip cutter

Here’s a handy gadget I found recently that you can knock up yourself for cutting your own Zonker strips. All that’s needed is a 5 of old style razor blades & two long thin bolts with nuts. If you are lucky enough to live in a country where whole treated rabbit pelts can bought rather cheaply then this the perfect gadget for all you tight arsed fishermen out their. For a piece of fur the size this chap is using to demonstrate with, costs around 15 euros here which is practically 12 short zonker strips from your local fly shop but with this gadget one can cut 40 to 50 long zonker strips for the same price. This is a huge saving if you’re prepared to put in the time and effort.
