Mink Matuka.... Sorta...

This fly is a lightweight version of a zonker fly, that also is similar to a matuka fly.  I dub in the fibers on the front of the fly instead of twisting on the skin of the zonker to keep the weight down and easier to cast with lighter fly rods.  I use mink zonker instead of rabbit to keep the fly smaller as well.  This can be tied in many colors.  White, black, olive, brown, and cream are some of the most popular streamer colors.  

Hook: Umpqua U103 - size 12
Thread: Ultra thread - 70 denier - color olive
Tail:  Mink zonker - color olive
Under body: Mink zonker hair and gold small wire
Body: Mink zonker dubbing brush

Check out the fly at the video at the link below.
