    I had a number of people inquire about these so I've attached the full instructions with pictures for both sizes.

    Nice work Ed, I will vouch for this flies fishyness. In our fall trip last year to Montana we had a few sculpzillas with us, they were by far the most productive streamer we used.

    do you guys think furled mono could replace the backing material used for the stinger? I don't have any backing in those colors laying around. Would the mono be to rigid? Awesome tie BTW! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks all.
    Furled mono should work, give it a shot.

    That was my first thought as well, but I couldn't figure out what color sharpie to use that would turn fluroescent green or orange into white or yellow. I have some yellow mono that I usually burn for eyes. I'll furel some of that or maybe some gold flurocarbon and give it a shot. I'll post back and let you guys know how it works out.

    HOW DO YOU ATTACH THE BACKING LINE TO THE STINGER HOOK?

    Great pattern and photos for the Sculpzilla. I am also looking for a pattern for the Sheila Sculpin- fished this one in Patagonia two years ago and it was a killer. I'm planning a trip to Katmai late summer and want to try both of these sculpin patterns.

    I would imagine you bend the backing in half, feed the bent bit thru the hook, and then bring the hook thru the loop...

    Nice instructions Ed....props to you.
