Brown Bear Tackle Box Fly Patterns

Please read the patterns carefully before attempting to tie them.

This will help avoid frustration. I have tried to put the pattern down in order of construction and some of these can become complicated and time consuming.


  Name - Zonker

  Hook - Mustad R70 8-2
  Thread - Thread
Underbody Wool or floss to build a nice taper
Body Gold or silver mylar tubing
Throat Red hackle fibers
Wing A strip of Rabbit tied in at the head of the fly and tied down at the rear of the body - If you run a bead of Crazy Glue or Zap down the back to hold the fur strip in place, it will last longer.
