Simple pattern:

 

streamer hook

lead

copper braid or gold braid wrapped for body

barred olive rabbit strip (pine squirrel works great for smaller sculpins)

olive wool for head

if you wish, tie in a piece red yarn underneath the chin

 

you can also tie in some pheasant feathers for fins---but then the fly really isn't that simple--but looks killer

 

pic below is of the fly described above

then a pic of nice wild brown that ate the sculpin !!!

 

show some pics of what you came up with........

 

even just wrapping barred olive rabbit with a wool head will look like a sculpin.........as stated above, there are many ways to tie a sculpin pattern......I like simple though..........

It might not be easy. But tying big streamers on top of a snelled hook does make a fly with a flexy, end-to-end way of swimming--unlike any other. The feather tail catches the currents too, which tends to keep the fly in a constant swim, no matter what.

Troth Bullhead is a good one. Essentially a large muddler minnow with a slight variation.

Yes...Troth Bulhead. Great fly.

Here are a few Troth Bullheads actually tied by Al Troth:
