My smaller zonkers are tied on Kamasan B120 size 10s and 8s. The big ones on Kamasan B830 size 8s and 6s, even some on a size 4!

What size & brand of hook would you recommend for tying Zonkers & Mohicans? Thanks

I've tied mohicans as small as a size 14 on a buzzer hook and as large as a size 10 on a czech nymph hook.

I've tied Zonkers from an 8-12 competition heavyweight hook - I rarely go above a size 8 for trout.

If you like l.s. curved hooks, then the partridge K12st is worth a look

I use Fulling Mill Comp Heavyweight in sizes 6, 8 and 10 for Zonkers , Minkies, Hummungus's etc....

You want a thick wire hook that's strong and won't bend out when you're piling the pressure on a big fish by the weedbeds.
