Bead Head Flash Zonker

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.In sizes: 4, 6, 8.

Good action for big bows and browns,

"I picked up a few of these flies when Orvis was offering free shipping a recently and I immediately ordered more. I've had excellent luck picking up some good sized (14-16" bows) with the Olive Flash BH zonker. The long tail creates very lifelike movement and has allowed me to trick more than a few browns and bows alike. So far this winter I've had good luck using this with a small copper john as a dropper."

"I tried out this fly on my grandpa's ranch's pond in Oregon and caught three bass on consecutive casts all over four and a half pounds, plus a six pound brown trout. This is a great fly for Oregon bass and big browns."

"This streamer is my go to for big trout. When they're not taking dries or nymphs tie this on, you won't be disappointed."
