These look terrific! I might need to try a few. What size hook did you use?

Miniature Articulated Sculpin

I was inspired by Kimo and decided to order some mini-articulated spines. This guy is all pheasant rump and pheasant maribou.

Thanks Old Hat.  Yes the hooks are very cool !  Nice looking fly and I bet it catches. The 16 looked small to me but then again with ever passing year all the hooks seem to be growing smaller.
