FLY TYING — ZONKER VARIANT

January 16, 2021 • Forum, Tips

Here’s a variation of the great pattern invented by Dan Byford in the mid-70’s. Replacing the mylar body with a conehead and dubbed Hare’e Ice body is a fantastic sculpin/leach pattern that should be tied in several colors.

 

Conehead Zonker

Hook: Orvis 0167 #6

Conhead: Gold medium

Thread: Uni Thread 6/0 black

Tail: Zonker strip black
