When should I fish with the Minky Zonker?

This graph shows trends of when fly fishermen use the Minky Zonker to fish with and what hooks are most popular throughout the fly-fishing season.

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.

Expert Tip:

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.
