About the Minky Zonker Trout Fly
The Minky Zonker is a type of Zonker Lure fly that is designed to imitate the appearance and movement of small fry, making it a highly effective pattern for targeting fish that are actively feeding on these small baitfish.
When fishing the Minky Zonker, anglers should focus on casting the fly to areas where small fry are present, such as along weed beds, over drop-offs, or near structure. The fly can be fished with a slow and steady retrieve, which can create a natural and lifelike presentation that is sure to provoke strikes from fish.
If fish start to nibble, change to a fast and erratic retrieve, which can create a commotion and mimic the movement of fleeing prey.
