Nice looking zonkers! Are you using the Magic Tool to build the bodies?

I caught a nice rainbow today on a white zonker.

shorthaul and mcnerney.. thanks...

according to ffotw, the white/silver is supposed to be effective for carp fishing... I still have to try it out...

Yes, I used the Magic Tool for the chenille like body... same problem.. can't split the thread so I use the spinning dubbing tool to twist them together. materials are flashbou and angel hair flash strips.

i been having a heck of a time making the mylar tube not fall part and these look like you solved the problem. I have to try some pearl flash chenille that will make a great body instead! thanks for the idea! also might try to use something red at the front for gills?

On another board I am on, a local guy I met was using the zonkers, then tieing in a white hackle. He would then use a red sharpie to give it gills. Pearl flash chenille works great. That's what I use. Hope that helps.
