If I take a bread-tie and twist it into a coil and throw it on the floor, he thinks it is prey and will slap it around endlessly.

You should try throwing a big black sculpin to your cat (as long as you cut the hook point off first)


Be careful as the cat will chew up the sculpin and bite yer flyline in half.....Got the fly line to prove it...

I remember that post. I sure was a newbie back then. I don't fish sculpins very often and need to change that this year. Now I just need to tie some. Thanks for the pic Sal.

In streamer fishing matching the natural is secondary to having a fly that is visible to the fish. It doesn't matter how accurately you match a typical food source if fish don't see your imitation. Black and white will usually outfish more realistic imitations simply because fish can see them from a greater distance in typical conditions. Of course, sometimes trout will chase a black streamer only until they get close enough to see that it isn't food - that's when you switch to something more realistic.


+1 on this also.

Or you can use a more natural looking streamer, fish it more erratic and give extra life to get the attention of fish.

OMG, that happened to me.....my neighbor (a kid in culinary school) came to me knowing I flyfished and offered me his two clearwater rods and orvis reels for sale. He needed money and didn't fish much. I said I really didn't need them but let me check them out. next day when I came home they were on the porch. I put the one I didn't already have together and started casting int he yard....cat came over and I looked down and before you knew it he bit the line in half. Like 20 ft from the leader.

I did the "did anyone see that" head spin and quickly coiled up the end, bit off the leader and retied it on to the "new" end.

Reeled it up and took the whole mess back.

I later bought the whole group when he asked again....

That's a wicked looking streamer! I bet that really comes to life in the water.

Just wanted to re visit this thread with a sculpin our very own Tim R. caught this weekend. Its a big one and pretty much the size I tie my patterns to chase big cumberland valley trout.

I found bot the red eye and the orange dorsal interesting.
I have a bunch of red eyes for sculpin patterns. Looks like I'm going to have to use them very soon.

Dude I saw that on FB. Couldn't believe the size of that slimmy nasty thing. I was of the opinion your sculpins may be too big, but then I saw that barfer and thought, "Meh...maybe not!"
