In the september/october issue there was an article about streamer fishing. The article was called Double Dose by Philip Monahan. The first page shows this awesome articulated fly. I dont know the name of it but I was hoping somebody on here has seen the article and knows the fly. If anyone knows the name of the fly and/or has the material list for it that would be awesome.

Thanks,
Tyler

Tyler,

Can you direct me to a picture of the fly? If you can find the article online and send me the link to the picture I may be able to tell you how it is made and a materials break down. Otherwise I would think contacting the author would be your way to go.

Looks like a yellow Sculpin pattern with a Mono stinger and beads with a little yellow chenille or yarn on the shank of the stinger hook.

I don't use this type for trout but tie them for pike. To make one you need to first lash a piece of 20 lb mono to the top of the hook (looks like a #2 or 4 down eye salmon hook) and cover it tightly with tying thread. Then lacquer it and let it dry. Then proceed with a yellow sculpin pattern on the salmon hook. When the tie is done string your beads on the mono and tie the stinger with the yellow body material and tie it in the mono at the correct length.

You can also do the beading and stinger first, tie it on and then construct the sculpin to fit the length of the mono / stinger tandem rig. I would say whichever is easier for you.

Hope that gets you on the right path.

Ard
