Fly Candy

Zonker streamers are a simple fly to tie and even easier to fish with purely because the mix of synthetic wig hair and rabbit zonker work so well together one doesn't need to do much with the retrieve to enduse a take. All you need is a strip of black rabbit zonker tied onto the back of the hook. Then take a couple of clumps of wig hair,taper the ends and fold over itself around the length of the rabbit zonker strip. Add a few strands of flash and then palmer on a small section of rabbit zonker to the front.

A friend of mine has bagged himself some nice brown trout with this same black/brown pattern near Tampere this year. A great low light and murky water fly best fished with a floating line.
