Video: How to Tie the Lite-Brite Zonker Fly

The Lite-Brite Zonker is a great little streamer developed by Bill Black at Spirit River. It’s a new spin on the traditional zonker. The Lite-Brite Zonker can be tied in several color variations, but the one tied in this video is a favorite. You can tie it with a standard brass bead or a tungsten bead for extra weight. This is a must have streamer in your fly box and it really does produce fish!!
