    The Olive Fish Skull Zonker is a great sculpin and small fish imitiation that can entice a hungry trout anytime. The keel weighted Fish Skull Head gives this fly a lot of motion when stripped. Try fishing this in spring and early summer and then again in the late fall. Swung or stripped, it will definitely turn a fish or two.

    The Fish Skull Stinger Zonker take the old classic zonker to another world. By adding the keel weighted Fish Skull and stinger hook, this pattern goes from dancing the Waltz to spinning the Tango. With the added movement and longer body, this pattern drives trout crazy. The Ice Queen version is great for mimicking small lamprey in the rivers or sand lance along sandy beaches in the salt.

    Fish Skull Zonkers are a beautifully tied update of the classic baitfish pattern. The Ice Queen version has a nice flashy belly and a white wing/tail that make it stand out in murky water.

    What really makes this fly pop though is the red throat. Whether the fish thinks the red is a flash of the gills or bleeding bait, who knows? What we do know is that trout devour this color combination, especially when fished in stillwater, slow moving streams or in the estuaries. The keel weighted Fish Skull Head gives this fly a lot of motion when stripped.

    Mark's Doppelganger is a deadly little salmon fry/smolt pattern designed to mimic out-migrating sockeye, chum and pink smolt. This pattern is super effective when dead drifted in the rivers of Bristol Bay to the small creeks of Southeast. The Doppelganger also rips on Dolly Varden and coastal searun cutthroat when strip retrieved in the estuaries.

    The Gray Doppelganger is a realistic small salmon fry/smolt pattern designed to mimic out migrating sockeye, chum and pink smolt. Try dead drifting it in the rivers from Bristol Bay to Southeast. It is also ridiculously good when strip retrieved in the estuaries and off the beaches.

    Fish the Pink Orange Honey Hole INSTEAD OF A BEAD! That's right, fish this deadly little fly without split shot, indicators and all the other messy stuff you wish wasn't on your leader. And it fishes like a beast!

    When Dolly Varden and Cutthroat are feeding off the beaches and stream mouths, these 28 time-proven patterns will catch them. Dollies and Cutts are notorious piscavores (fish eaters.) This is especially true in the spring and early summer when the salmon fry are schooled in the stream mouths and off the beaches. These 28 time-tested patterns will catch fish all over Southeast and Kodiak.

    Big fish eat little fish and they don't care if they are the same species. The Rainbow version will entice big trout, from lakers to browns to monster rainbows, into wanting a tasty treat. The Fish Skull Stinger Zonker take the old classic zonker to another world. By adding the keel weighted Fish Skull and stinger hook, this pattern goes from dancing the Waltz to spinning the Tango. With the added movement and longer body, this pattern drives trout crazy.

    Our custom AK Clouser in Gray/White is tied on a nickel-plated long shank hook. Because salmon fry are fairly translucent, we have these tied with just enough material to give them a good profile while still allowing them to be very realistic. Olive/White and Gray/White are the two "Go-To" colors for sea run Dolly Varden and Cutthroat off the beaches. The AK Clouser is very good for rainbow and char in the rivers, too.

    The "Cop Car" AK Clouser is one of those stealthy color combos. It is one of our favorite "under the radar" silver flies in a #2. And it's a deadly salmon smolt imitation for spring rainbows and Dolly Varden.
