Look and Learn: Bunnies for Pike with Norbert Renaud


Norbert Renaud from L’Ile Verte Lodge in Cavan is back this week with some classic natural materials – zonker strips. Find out how he uses rabbit to full effect when targeting pike…

Norbert’s notes: So yes, as you saw in the stream I am a big fan of rabbit zonker for pike flies, and also for any other predatory fish out there. A simple rabbit strip on a hook will catch you so many species time and time again, no matter where you are in the world, in fresh or salt water.
