Olive Feather Sculpin

tied by cussfly16
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Southeast US,
Imitation: General Baitfish,
Material List:
1/0 Salmon fly hook
Tungsten Cone
.025 Lead wrapped up front 2/3rds of hook
Brown 70 denier UTC
Tail: 2 long Olive Rooster Saddle Hackles
Body: Gray, Golden Brown, and Olive Saddle Folded and wound on. Then use the Pheasant (I don't know the proper name of the particular feather. Sorry.) to suggest the lateral line. Towards the front, I threw some Guinea in. Try to end on the Olive or the Gray, it will look better.

Tying Instructions: Pretty straight forward
Presentation Tips: Dead drift, down and across, straight downstream with herky jerks.......
