Mitch's Unbalanced Sculpin
The Unbalanced Sculpin was spawned from the Unbalanced Leech. By adding a few extra ingredients I figured I might be able squeeze an equally effective Sculpin pattern out of it. Little extra goat, a dubbing loop body, coupled with a trimmed hackle head. Right out of the gate it produced over my expectations on a number of waters, taking Brooks, Browns and Rainbows. It's simple to tie, very durable and fish eat it! What more could you want?
