Hook: Gamakatsu 10012, 2/0
Thread: Danville Flymaster Plus, 140 dr. red

Wing: Magnum Zonker Strip, barred yellow

Tying Instructions: Lay a thread base and tie in eyes. Move thread to bend. Attach rattle to top of shank with very tight wraps of the electrical tape. Tie in tail, then body strips. Advance thread to front and palmer body strips side by side up the shank and tie off. Part body hair, pull barred zonker forward, and tie off.
