RE:Bonito Bunnie Fly

It's not at all uncommon to have a fair amount of 'underfur' pull out of zonker while you are working with it. You have two choices if you have a strip that is really loaded,
- before you use the strip, just stroke it with your thumb and index finger to work the loose underfur out.
- be a bit more gentle with the strip as you are tying with it (tough to do when you are trying to palmer a section!!)

When I'm using a lot of zonker I usually end up the night with that fur airborn all around the bench and clinging to various parts of my 10 0'clock shadow..

ps; Page Rogers is a fisherwoman (and an outstanding one at that)
