Little Sculpin #6

This is a little guy, which I really like. It’s just 5-6 cm long, tied on a hook size 6. In the front is a tungsten bead. The head made of deer hair is soaked with Uv resin. It’s almost indestructible. 💣 The body is ice dub and a nice Zonker strip. Brought me some really nice fish in the past years. Good for browntrout and seatrout as well. The fly you see on the photo is fished and almost three years old.

Changing The Cork Grip On A Fly Rod – A Picture Story

A little picture story about the change of the cork grip on a Vision Mag 3/4 10ft. I cut away the hook keeper and lenghten the grip some centimeters. Originally, the rod had a kind of mini full wells. Didn’t liked it at all and I changed the form with sanding paper by hand after a short while. The result was better, but far away from good. So, one evening I decided to remove the cork and then I started to rebuild the grip with good quality cork discs.

Original grip above. The pictures below are after the first shaping by hand.

Beaver attack at the grip ;-)

Half of the cork is cut away.

Most of the cork is gone

tight fitting

The result with a new winding check and a bit of lime green metallic thread.
