[dropcap]F[/dropcap]eatured in this YouTube fly tying tutorial is the “Sculpzilla,” an excellent representation of a sculpin from the Solitude Fly Company. This is a nasty streamer that is known to catch some really large fish, plus an easy pattern to tie when broken down into individual steps. Most importantly, you can vary the size and color of this pattern to match sculpins, leeches, and other bait fish in your area.
The original Sculpzilla was tied as an articulated streamer, and though those are effective patterns, this fly can be modified and tied on a regular streamer hook. The key to this is keeping the proportions correct, and this fly has more than enough movement to it even without being tied articulated.[youtube id=”eG-CfHbBSD8″ width=”620″ height=”360″]
