There are a few circumstances about Zander-Flyfishing which are quite tricky but challenging at the same time. I don´t consider the fly pattern to be that much important but it should fit - as far as the size is concerned - into the prelevant prey pattern.

Zander seeks for cover at the bottom across the board - especally in rivers where obstacles are cutting the current and create friction- This friction generates less watervelocity in the slipstream of any obstacle... However...
Structured ground is a predestinated place for fish... but sometimes bad for Lures and Flies...

You can decrease your casualty rate by using heavy eye beads and UpSideDown (USD)tied patterns
Deciever or Bonefishfly like patterns
like this one which brought a lot of fish
Image
Sorry it looked kinda fu**ed up after one day of fishing...

and Classic patterns like:
Wolly Buggers:
Image

If they are specialized on crayfish, I use this one:
Image

Baitfish:
Image

As I said before, this patterns may look fancy....but it is no binding commitment for success - especally when it´s a bit darker (which is probably the best time) Pattern doesn´t really matter... because the Zander attacks from below... the shape and size is much more important. Against the light thats left... everything looks dark. Chatreuse, White, gray and Black... and you cover the whole range from teasing to imitating.

Hope this discription helps you.

Cheers and tight lines,
Steph
