Spent yesterday afternoon fishing in the drizzle
Started fishing CDC Emergers and having a ball unfortunately(reluctantly) switching over to streamers.A greased Kiwi Muddler was just what the doctor ordered as the rain picked up and the wind started blowing.

Do you use just natural zonked or do you tie them in other colors also. Nice looking brookie.

I confess its not a pattern that I tie,but always keep a half dozen. Think that they would be great tied using olive or black zonker and deer hair head to match. I have been using them in the natural colors. A great fly for fall.

Can't argue with your success. I have had much luck with a Turck's Tarantula just after first frosts when there are a few hoppers left (meat and potatoes) for fish to target. Its not too difficult a fly to tie as I tie on # 12, but does involve spinning some deer hair
