The Story

Zonker/Muddler combines the lifelike movement of crosscut rabbit fur in the tail, with bulk and weight in the head that matches the motion of fleeing baitfish. When fished on the swing, fish will chase it down and smash it. This Muddler fly pattern has incredible movement in the water and has proven itself by catching everything from bass, to big trout and even pike.

Sizes 4, 6, 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality Fly Love this streamer. Works great. Caught some pan fish right out of the gate with it. Still searching for the Trout....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only bought one of these... I wish I bought more. I tied the black Conehead Bunny Muddler on and casted it out for the first time. Almost instantly it got crushed by a 6lb+ rainbow. The fish jumped and my fly broke off. Bad knot on my part, great fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent all-around streamer I've caught brook trout and smallmouth in fast-flowing rapids and trolled with this to catch rainbows. It's action seems to catch just about anything. Let it sink or retrieve it more quickly depending on the depth you wish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great action, variety of colors, strong durability I was on the search for new white streamer patterns and purchased every white streamer I could find. By far, the conehead bunny muddler was the winner. First, it produced fish, whether I was targeting jetty fish in the saltwater or trout in freshwater. Second, the action is far better than other white streamers. The cross-cut hair + the small strip of leather on the hook + the weighted head gives this streamer a combination of playfulness when you pause your retrieve and minnow-like action while retrieving. Third, these streamers hold up to multiple days of fishing and multiple fish on the line. I originally purchased the white bunny muddler and have since expanded my collection to include some of the other colors, most notably the olive. This gives me more options depending on the cloudiness of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its the Tail The tail flairs nicely in slower water as it settles around rocks and does a great job of enticing bass

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Reliable 15 years ago I picked a couple of these in olive, headed to the Gallatin in the Park working a cut bank it was game on, a couple of nice Browns and a rainbow. I was sold I've caught many summer time Browns on the Madison last year I managed my biggest there so far at 24" dead drifted in deep fast water. I've lost a few I couldnt stop with out a doubt in my book in 15 trips to the golden ring this is my go to streamer if I can't catch them on this then they ain't biting.
