Hook: Mustad 3366, #6
Thread: UNI Thread 8/0, Olive
Tail: Marabou, Olive
Body: Dubbing, Olive
Hackle: Rooster Saddle, Olive
Pectoral Fins: Rooster Saddle Hackle Fluff, Chartreuse
Weight: Black Cone, Large

Here is the latest Remnant fly. This one is #13 and a Sculpin type of fly. I ran across the hook and the cone at the same time and this led me to start thinking about a sculpin imitation. It really is a simple conehead woolly bugger with some fluff tied on the sides of the head as pectoral fins. Plus, it is a heavy fly so it will swim along the bottom. I will be fishing this fly in the upcoming season and making certain to get some video footage of it in action. - - Enjoy

As I continue the Remnant fly series I will have a #12 fly out in a couple weeks and it and all future Remnant flies will be only on Locals for those who support the community. After a year (or so) of being on the Guild community I will then publish them to everyone on YouTube. Exclusive content is one small way to thank those who support the Dressed Irons Guild Community.

If you have any questions about the tying of this fly feel free to let me know in the comments below.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
