Tom ... Good Job

I really like the Goldfish and Yellow Shiner. The Gold fish has just the right amount of flash and the body on the yellow shiner with the guinea collar is great.

I'd consider using a double tube set up on the zonker to keep the rabbit from fouling the hook. Take a look at Brian Silvey's tandem tubes .... here is some tying steps for it ...

Essentially, all you really need to do is take off the junction tubing and lash on a medium plastic tube under the tail of the zonker strip .

Keep on tying..
