Sculpzilla Sculpin - Featured 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, I wanted to demonstrate that 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. Featured in this video are the S403 streamer hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; you can find those hooks and more at the following link: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/s403-nymph-streamer-3xl/ Thanks for viewing this YouTube fly tying tutorial, and I encourage you to view my additional videos at the following website: http://www.troutandfeather.com Feel free to leave any questions/comments on this YouTube page, or you can email me: tcammisa@gmail.com - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher
