    Nice---just wondering if the hook were used to the point was up instead of down, would that snag less...the eyes don't appear to be weighted so I assume it is designed to fish on a sink tip.

    yeah i never weight any of my sculpins. i use sinking lines so the fly has more natural movement. and when i am fishing this is rivers its a relatively fast strip so i don't snag much of anything plus if i can get them on an aggressive chase they are more inclined to strike the fly.

    Hence the name "frozen....."
    I like the brown/golden version, great for fall.

    I tie nearly the same fly but using only ice dub, sans marabou tail. It works very well on SRC and coho. Sometimes with a conehead.
