Picture of the Day
Lindström Style Zonkers

This style of zonker fly - main characterised by the long and accurately tapered zonker strip - is originated by Swedish tier Mikael Lindström. How come two of the best and most innovative salmonfly tiers are named Mikael and come from Sweden?

The flies are quite simple ties - once the strips have been cut from the skin and tapered, a fly takes less that 5 minutes to complete, and they are really durable too. See from above or below, the wing is steeply tapered - broad at the end, very anrrow at the tail.
