Re: My First Sculpin, What do you think?
Franzen, good start dude!
My only thought is, if you can catch another one, turn it loose in a tank and watch.
They hang on the bottom and "stand" on their pectoral fins.
Using hen feathers like lancer mentioned is good, if you tie it so the feather curves away from the body you will get a nice effect. Very swimmy. love the wabbit fur too.
Next to marabou, it is my favorite ingredient.
Water works a bit like wind, a ferrari cuts through better than a RV. Slender sinks faster.
Keep lookin, and tying. (Don't forget to pinch that barb too.)
Can't wait to see the picture of the fish that falls for it.
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
