Just a few for the neighbor’s grandson. Just a bead WB with extra long hackle. He never liked his veggies too well. Pop-Pop saw them wet and thought they looked like green beans.

Yes Michael, a green bead (not bean LOL), metallic from the craft store, size 4 streamer hook. Posted this more for fun. I think they take it for a sculpin and there are much better imitations. The kid can lose a fly faster than even I can. I keep them super simple and just keep tying them when he tells me he’s out.

Well, Ithink you should give them a try Bill, i use some similar in size and color.

Thanks Raymond. I know they work because Andrew (grandson) catches with them. I’ve used something similar myself with reasonable success. I like sculpin imitations that hug the bottom better than these do. Fish skull type flies tied in similar colors do a better job of imitating the natural in my opinion. In my waters most sculpins have less olive and more golden tones. They are also more heavily mottled so a golden pale olive hackle with speckled fibers seems to work best for me.

@davistre Hi Trenton, No to both questions. Do you spend time in the Post Office or local police station looking at the wanted posters? Perhaps that is why I look familiar to you? HaHaHaHa. Seriously, I like to share info about tying flies and the history and rationale associated with their development. I’ve been tying since my first one sitting on my grandfather’s lap over 60 years ago. I’ve found that I can learn from everyone, and I’ve an insatiable curiosity. Keep posting photos of your ties and I’ll learn something from you too. If I can offer any advice, just ask.
