kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

OVERcast tied the Seaducer. I can't be takin' credit for someone else's work.

The sculpin you posted looks like a fush gettin' sumbitch. Did you say the strip was seal? Looks like some I tied up with muskrat. I'll see if I can find a pitcher.

Sorry my bad, but then he has made a great fly and your caddis wasnt half bad either. :Roll Eyes
The zonker strip is kangaroo actually, the body is sealfur, pecfins are patridge, muddler head is elk hair.
Its a big sucker, maybe 4 inches or so. The sculpins in out nordic waters are rather large.
:cool

Tippett: 3X with over hand Knot [optinal] for attaching split shot, and yes I thought the same thing......... really. The trout just don't give a fuck.
The Mono lead hanger is a new one for me. Is the purpose to hold it worm head up, or flip it hook point up?

I believe to hold the head of the caddis upright, with the concept of the caddis poking it's head from the case and the mallard flank to mimic the legs extracting from its case. I found the pattern in a book at Barnes & Noble, when looking for new patterns to tie probably in 1997. Wish I would have purchased the book. The author was very innovative in pattern design and fish ability the thing works incredibly well. I'm not a entomologist guru, but I know the basics for identifying most aquatic insects. The fly was designed for exactly what you mentioned in your response and proved to be an excellent fly. Speaking in generalities I usually fished the caddis in riffle to run and banging it off the bottom and in many cases I walked away thinking I had hooked every fish in the run. If you choose to tie a few make certain you use the brightest green you can find. I'll grab the dubbing and post up a picture later. Watch for the [edit].

Overcast not Out.
