great ties dudes. I agree on the addiction of tying streamers. I love smallie fishing(great fish to test on, they are generally rather mean), and coming up with new/interesting patterns. I agree with whoever said there is nothing wring with smaller streamers for fall/lower water trout. I like to tie a small pop-cycle type marabou streamer for smaller water trout. If I get a chance, I will post one up.

So this is what I've been tying and fishing lately. Kinda messing around with a bunch of different tying products/materials to see what fishes the best. So far, the tan barred sculpin helmet fly produces the most fish, but is the least fun to fish due to size. Also, I was fishing it with 4x and if I didn't retie it every 15 minutes, it would break from friction with the hook eye. Not digging the fish masks a whole lot yet, but I should just tie more lead with them to fix that. Last, the galloup's sex dungeon works best in tan/brown as well. I like these a lot because they are cheap and fun to tie. I've only fished it once, and was very pleased, so this could be my favorite. I can't wait for some cloudy water so I can fish some white and yellow flies.

bump it up to 2x Fluoro for those heavier flies and tie a non slip loop or Tarpon loop. Should help

I dig the masks, I've been throwing them with an intermediate or heavy sink tip line instead of weighting the fly or using split shot. They track nicely, however if you smack a cast off a rock or something, dont expect the fly to come back with the mask still on it.

Thats a wicked looking pattern. I really like those sculpins too. Simple and effective pattern. I havn't tied with the fish skulls or sculpin helmets yet, but I am picking up some for my winter tying sessions to replenish the stock lost this season, and definitely look forward to fishing them.

I've drawn up some sweet articulated junk using the skulls. Big ol' 7 inch trout steaks. I'm sticking a ten pounder next year come hell or high water lol

Haha hell yea!! And thanks man. If those sculpin heads weren't so expensive (for a college kid) I would tie more with them. I guess when I use 2x I wont lose them as much so it wont be too bad. They produce fish thats for sure
