Articulated Sculpin

I tied a few of these up last spring to see how the Trout in Pine Creek would like them, and they gave their approval after only a few casts.  The Brown Trout seemed to prefer them more than the rainbows, but the rainbows that liked them were bigger than the cookie cutter bows.

I fished this sculpin pattern every way I could just to see how it would fish and if it would foul at all, and I didn't have any problems.  I might change the hook in the rear to something with a larger gap, but it seems to be working just fine.

The materials are fairly easy to acquire and the tying steps aren't too crazy as well.  It's just a little time consuming at first until you get into a groove.
