Featured Fly - The Sculpin with No Name

This featured fly is a streamer I came up with last fall for steelhead, the sole purpose was to peg a bead in front to look like a real egg stealing sculpin. So after a couple attempts I came up with this guy in brown, then sitting at the bench one night I decided to tie it in olive and white. Off color water, and bright clear water, I have it covered. Took it out this past week, needless to say its a winner. So here it is. Also this fly can be used for trout as well.

The Sculpin with No Name
Hook: Any long shank streamer Hook (TMC 5263)
Thread: UNI Thread 6/0 - Olive 
Bead: Tungsten Bomb Bead - Black 
Tail: Marabou - Oliv
Body: Hare-Ice Dub - Olive 
Rib: UV Polar Chenille - Olive 
Flash: Polarflash - Olive 
Collar: Saddle Hackle - Olive 
Head: Senyo's Laser Dub - Olive 

Step 1: Tie the bead about 1 hook eyes length behind the eye.

Step 2: Tie in your stinger hook line. Here I used Firewire, but you can use backing or 20lb mono.

Step 3: Next tie in a marabou tail, making sure it is evenly tied around the hook.

Step 4: Tie in the uv polar chenille.

Step 5: Making a loose wrap, dub forward to the bead.

Step 6: Palmer the chenille forward, making a nice buggy look.

Step 7: Tie in 5 or 6 strands of Polarflash right behind the bead.

Step 7: Make a collar with the saddle hackle. This will help keep the head from collapsing when wet.

Step 8: Center tie in  clump of Laser Dub over the top, both sides and bottom.

Step 9: Whip finish and cut thread.

Finished Product:

These are great Smallmouth Flies - Sculpin Fly Pattern
