Dumbell Fat Head Zonker

Introduction: Dumbell Fat Head Zonker

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

This has enough weight to use with a conventional or spinning rod and I use this fly to catch flounder in the Texas gulf with my conventional gear. It is also a great fly to use with heavier fly rods (8wt and up) just because of the excess weight. If you lighten up the weight, you could use it with a lighter rod. This will imitate a small baitfish, and moves incredibly in the water.
