Sculpins

Little sculpins #6 weighted with a tungsten head in the front. The deer hair head is secured with Bug Bond Lite to make it indestructible. I always liked this pattern und and I will always do, because I caught some really nice trouts with it. No matter, if you fish them upstream, in the swing or stripping them in, trouts love ’em.

It takes a bit to cut the head and it’s always a mess on your tying table, but it’s worth it. At least for me it is. ;-)
