Articulated Sculpins

Just a couple patterns I have been playing with. Wanted something big and heavy with a ton of action for colder temps.  Pic quality is shlt taken from my phone.









The moment of truth. Where all other things unconsciously melt away from our minds the instant a fish takes our fly. We stand there on the water with wide eyes, caught in a battle stance with an idea of confidence and hope
