Fly Tying Patterns

Tying the Red baron double zonker

Okej, so I threw another pike fly tutorial together tonight. Figured I could take some photos while tying this double zonker fly, nothing special but it's a super deadly fly design under the right conditions.

"The red baron"

Hook: TMC 811S
Thread: UNI mono
Tails: Black barred orange zonker strips and red crystal flash
"Wings": Orange grizzly schlappen feathers.
"Collar": Zonker trips winded, red marabou and red bucktail
Head: Bucktail epoxy glue and stick on eyes.

Start by piercing the hook trough a zonker strips sliding it on the hook upside down.

Then tie it in along the hook shank on the underside.

Photobucket

Tie in a second zonker trip on top of the shank making it a little longer than the lower one.

Photobucket

Tie in a couple of schlappen feather splayed, on each side of the tails.

Photobucket

Add 6-7 strands of crystal flash around the hook.

Photobucket

Tie in another zonker strip, preferably crosscut but not nescasary, just in front of the the "wings".

Photobucket

Wind it forward 5-6 turns, letting every turn slightly overlap the previsous one making the fibers beeing pushed backwards.

Photobucket

Tie in and wind the top of a red marabuou feather in front of the winded zonker.


Photobucket

Take a nice big bunch of reda bucktail forward over the hooks eye. Secure it with alot of turns with the thread and then add glue to the tie in.

Photobucket

Pull back all the fibers with one hand....

Photobucket

And then add a couple of loose turns of the thread....

Photobucket

And then tighten the thread as much as possible to make the bucktail flair as much as you want.

Photobucket

Secure the thread, wip finish and add stick on eyes and a layer of epoxy and you are done!
