Tying the Zonkey - Step-by-Step

May's step-by-step has been produced in conjunction with Mid Clyde Angling Association and Glasgow Angling Centre.  This month we look at tying the Zonkey, which is a modern take on the 'Monkey' Salmon fly, with a Rabbit Zonker Wing, Eyes and a Resin Head.

All materials and equipment needed for this step-by-step can be found in our Fly Tying Section of the Fishingmegastore website.  Also why not drop into the store for advice on flies and fly tying!
