How to Tie a Pearl Zonker

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

Zonkers go in and out of fashion, but they’re one of the most versatile streamer patterns around, especially for early season and high water fishing.  Here Tim Flagler ties a Pearl Zonker on a size 6 Lighting Strike SN3 streamer hook, which has a 3X long shank.

    One of my go to patterns in Light Olive, for fall brown trout fishing, The State here is CT stocks millions of Atlantic Salmon Smolts to restore the Atlantic Salmon her they been doing it for well over 40 years now with not much success, few fish return, but the Brown Trout love the Smolts and a Zonker in light to mid Olive with either a pearl or gold color body works very very well, I regularly catch some of my biggest browns of the year with this fly.
