2015.04.18.dryfly.me.tubesHave started to do up the body separately now to focus on one and one thing, that way I can do lots of tinsel work first, then pull out the hair and do the hairwing later.

Muddler + Zonker

2015.04.01.dryfly.me.zmuddler1Hook: TMC811S #4
Thread: UNI 6/0 Black
Tail: Rabbit Zonker
Body: A.Jensen Saltwater Dub ll White
Head: Roe

Earlier this winter I got a Roe skin, and before that some Rabbit skins, and since it is seatrout season start around these parts of the world I thought I would tie up some muddler/zonker variants to bring with me.

This is the first time I’ve tied up anything muddler-like for seatrout, but if you have the basics of spinning hair this is not very hard to do. I chose the TMC811S since with its short shank and very durable design (I really like this hook!), I also tied in some rubber legs on some variants to see how they will behave and look in the water.

2015.04.01.dryfly.me.zmuddler3They are not small, but neither are they super-big, so my #6 will have no problem swinging these over easter.

IMG_0893I had to go down to the city and get some smaller versions of this hook and tie up some on the 811S #8. This have some added lead to bring it down.
