Tying a SEXY ZONKER MINNOW by Jorge G
A small minnow pattern for big trouts. Due to the position of the eyes/weight, it works inverted which is very useful to fish very close to the bottom or between different structures in the river. I hope you like it. Good fishing.

I’ve been following Shawn from McFly Angler for a few months now and in addition to the great fly tying content on the page, he also ties up some great looking flies. This keeled streamer is great for bass, pike, and larger trout. The fly rides hook up in the water and should help avoid any unscheduled snags. Make sure that you view until the end to get a preview of the fly swimming underwater.

This meaty pattern from Montana angler Matt Wilhelm is sure to draw some specimen trout into the open from the safety of the undercut. Matt uses the fly both in the spring after the spawn and in the fall. Earlier in the week, I was treated to a spectacular video of Alaskan trout fishing by OPST and would love to have a chance to chuck this fly to some of the beautifully marked and speckled rainbows featured in the video. Matt explains that he doesn’t stick to a strict set of colors for the fly and will makes changes depending on conditions and water clarity. Matt also suggests adding extra weight to the shank for those who are wading while fishing the fly. I do see a bit of an issue with the eye placement on the top of the shank. The fly will keel over and ride hook up. A couple suggestions to combat this is to use a bead or cone head up front with body weight added, or tie the rabbit strip on the underside and attach it through the hook.
