|Hook:||(M) 79580 + Weight|
|Body:||Olive Camel Hair|
|Rib:||Gold Oval Tinsel|
|Head:||Clumps of Wool|
Notes on tying:
1. Wrap hook with 20 wraps of medium weight lead.
2. Tie in oval gold tinsel.
3. Dub body with olive camel fur.
4. Add olive rabbit strip for wing tied in matuka style wrapping with gold oval tinsel from the rear of the fly to the eye through the feather. 5. Add 2 pheasant neck feathers one on each side for fins.
6. Comb out lambs wool, cut in half, and tie clumps of wool around the hook shank. Pack it tight like deer hair and add several clumps (Use different colors to give a mottled head).
7. Tie off and trim wool for the head sculpin style.
This pattern acts like a sculpin that is found in many streams. It is also described by Craig Mathews and John Juracek in Fly Patterns of Yellowstone. The weight and wool allows it to sink and to be fished on the bottom.
