    This pattern was reportedly bought at Anil's shop. Does it mimic sculpin? Do you know the pattern name?
    Thanks!

    I am told it works but I have not fished it. Need to tie a few myself so I don't loose the original.

    I believe it is called the Brown Sculpi-Tard...not to be confused with the Brown Sculpin-Turd
    If it looks like food a Searun will eat it

    I understand one of their favorite meals is clam necks
    I bet when it's wet it kinda looks like one of those

    bet if you tied in orange it would work well
    nice little pattern

    Hey Jeff, did you tie up a flat wring?, long distance C&R the other night with a red white and blue grizz hackle flat wring, likely a Coho

    Thank you Pat and Dennis. The fly in my photo is a slight variation of the SBS posted in the link, with a spun deer hair collar behind the head.

    Fortunately this fly is NOT the brown sculpi-tard

    Hey Tony. Glad you are loosing flat wings to big fish. I sat at my desk with intentions of tying the Rhody Queen and ended up tying few Humpy Charlie flies for a friend.... can you believe that!
