Point Up Zonker Sculpin

This fly is made to mimic a sculpin. Sculpins are a common food source for large trout and other large predatory fish in lakes and rivers. These fish have fat heads and drastically tapered bodies with very small tails. They tend to stay close to the bottom, which is why this fly has lots of weight to keep it down. Also, I made this fly to sit hook point up, which will help keep it from snagging on the bottom.

Fins: Partridge tail feather
Body Wrap: Cactus chenille - Orange
Body Material: Magnum Rabbit Zonker Strip - Orange or tan

Eyes: 3D eyes - 4mm - Gold

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
