Back to Sculpins, I have enough tubes and Intruders to last through several seasons. I don't lose many flies so unless they come undone due to poor construction I should be set. Call me lazy but I have not been taking pictures of flies tied.
I'm making a new style Sculpin with a Zonker strip that slides free on a strip of power braid where the #6 stinger hook is tied. I saw this style at a shop, they use the waste from tube tying to make the slider, I think it's all about not having the trailing hook get tangled.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words
These are a substantial size lure.
I don't know if the slider is going to be beneficial or if it's just a gadget.
Maybe I'm becoming a sucker for gizmos as I get older huh?
I'll get this figured out better to where I use just a tiny slice of tube for the slider. I also need to work at getting them fatter in the front. The fish you are trying to catch with those are average about 18" with some bigger.
