The Story

When big freshwater predators are the targets, this is one of the best flies to use for pike, big lakers, browns, bass, and any other species that like big juicy meals. Tons of movement and life with the exaggerated zonker strip and the bead head gives it some weight to get under quickly.

Sizes: 4, 6, 8.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for steelhead Used these in March in NE Ohio. Swung and dead drifted with some success. Very well made. Weighted perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fishes There are some flies that catch fish. This is one of them. They get smashed, but are durable as heck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Catches Fish Nice leechy fly that catches smallies if they're biting and worked slowly and methodically under the bank and limbs in slow water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fly--well-tied I haven't used this for trout yet, but it has performed remarkably for bass. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bead head flash zonkers-white I recently purchased 15 of these flies because they work great for trout...specifically steelhead. When my wife purchased the Helios 2 9' 7 wt. w/Mirage reel for an anniversary gift, I also bought 2 of these to try (always buy doubles, just in case.) Not only was it a pleasure to cast the Helios 2 for steel, but these streamers turn over beautifully on that rod and have a nice "wavy-shimmer" in the current. First time out I let the white zonker sit in the current several times then, WHAM!!! Nice dime-silver acrobatic steelie took it and ran. Also caught a decent Northern Pike the same day on the same fly! This fly is my "go to" for steelies on Lake Erie and Ontario tribs. Thanks babe, and thank you Orvis!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from trout, bass, anything that eats leaches Give this a dead drift with tight mend, small stripes and you will bring in something hungry.
