This is one of my own patterns. Utilizing the same methods as my Kitchen Clog fly I use a Partridge curved shank hook (size 6), and a Fly Men Fishing Company Sculpin Helmet. This provides great hooking ability and this little pattern can resemble a sculpin, crawfish, or baitfish. The Helmet makes this fly drop like a rock to the bottom of deep pools and runs!
I fish this pattern dead drift or with an active retrieve. It has been a highly successful pattern for me bringing in countless rainbow trout, tons of browns, and even brook trout! It’s not a huge streamer but rather falls into the “micro-streamer” category.
The body is made of Fox Squirrel Dubbing and has traces of flash in it. The tail color is bi-tone: Tan on top and white on the bottom. This fly is sold in packs of 3.
