While rabbit zonkers make fantastic streamers there are times when a longer, stiffer zonker strip has an advantage; saltwater and bass flies come to mind.
Enter: Awesome Possum Zonkers – zonker strips made of soft tanned, stripped possum hides.
These zonkers are outstanding for large flies because the hair averages over 1” in length with a density similar to rabbit strips.
The stiffer hair makes the strip less likely to wrap around the bend of the hook during the cast. The subtle black tips also give a two-toned look adding visual appeal to the fly.
