The Sculpin is the fly of the week.

Don's Sculpin

One of my first fishing trips to Pennsylvania's Letort Spring Run was with Don Douple.

Don, dressed more like a turkey hunter than a fly fisherman, crawled up to the stream,

tied a monster fly on to his 5x tippet and flipped the weighted behemoth, bass fishing style into a large, submerged brush pile and let it sit.

After what seemed like hours he began a hand twist retrieve. After a couple of twists the rod bent, Don was into a huge fish.


John Collins Sculpin

I'd been looking for a smaller version of the Sculpin. Johns fits the bill.
