Thursday Night Fly Tying Night...Sheila's Sculpin

Sheila's Sculpin

Hook: Dai-Riki 270 Natural Bend #2-8
Thread: White 120 Denier or 6/0 or comparable
Eyes: Gold bar-bell style eyes
Tail: Natural rabbit or pine squirrel strip and olive grizzly hackle
Body: Synthetic golden yellow/olive dubbing
Throat: Red dubbing
Collar: Lemon Wood Duck or Mallard dyed Wood Duck
Head: Grizzly dyed olive hackle or chickabou

We'll be tying a slight variation of the pattern due to available materials, but the finished product should match up well!

This is an under appreciated, and frankly ugly looking streamer patter that happens to be very effective in Montana. In my experience it tends to fish better dead-drifted or swung. 


Here's a link to a video on how to tie:


Hope to see you all this evening at 5pm. Please bring tools and thread and I'll supply the rest! BYOB
