Tying Sculpin with Sculpin Helmet

Sculpin with Sculpin Helmet

The little Sculpin that I'm tying


Head - Sculpin Helmet by FishSkull brown small and Woodchuck fibers
Body and tail - Squirrel Zonker
Hook - Gamakatsu B10S
Belly and under body - Prism SLF Dub
Sili Legs, Gel Glue and Markers

Step by step tying instructions:

Prepare the hook and tie in some dubbing

I use brown, gray and dark brown dubbing to create the belly and underbody

Turn the vise, hook thru the zonker, drop a small drop of Gel glue to secure it

Tie down the zonker and trim the extra

Tie in the Sili leg at both side

Cut 2 small pcs of zonker and tie in at the side as the side fins

Tie in some dark brown dubbing

Tie in some Woodchuck fiber

Fold over the fiber and tie down, whip finish.

Add some adequate amount of Gel glue, insert the Sculpin Head, glue on the eye

Tie in some thread to secure the head

Color it with marker. The Sculpin is ready

Have fun and happy tying
