Kelly Galloup developed this simple but effective sculipin fly pattern.
”This is my version of Ed Shenk's sculpin. I tie this fly in every color under the sun. I like it in black, white, olive, tan, chartreuse, and yellow, but I tie it in any color that comes to mind. This is a great multiple-trigger fly—it could be a sculpin, crayfish, or a minnow. One thing is for sure: It is a great big-fish fly and should be in every streamer angler’s fly box.” - Kelly Galloup
