Fly of the Month - December
Pine Squirrel Sculpin
The Pine Squirrel Sculpin is a pattern that is tied by Craig Stephens, T. Hargrove Fly Fishing, Inc shop manager. It is a quick, easy tie that does a nice job of imitating a sculpin. Tie it in natural, olive, black, rust, purple pine aquirrel to match the color of sculpin found in the water you are fishing. Hook sizes range from a 12 to 4 in 2XL.
