Senyo's Sculpin

The use of the slimy sculpin as a baitfish for trout dates back to the mid 1920s when it was favorite bait under the name "cockatouch" for brook trout in the Nipigon Canada waters. This fly pattern nicely emulates these prehistoric fish that are a significant part of the lake trout, brook trout, salmon, and northern pike diet. When fly fishing cold water up north, a good sculpin pattern is a must. In olive.Brook trout flies available in sizes: 4, 6, 8.

Another Senyo Success,
January 3, 2012
By: Riverstalker
"Greg Senyo is one of today's best tiers for two reasons: His patterns are easy to tie and they catch fish like crazy. Tough combo to beat, and this simple-but-realistic sculpin pattern is a prime example. Great for big trout and steelhead..."

"Used this fly this weekend for steelhead. Although we found no fish the fly has great action and the right amount of flash. Looks great in the water and fishes easily. Can't wait to try it on a bigger river for large browns."

A great Fly from a great teacher!!,
February 11, 2008
By: flyfishingbum

"I booked a winter steelhead trip this last december with Mr. Senyo, I really wanted to learn how to swing flies on these smaller tributaries and be successful. I had read numerous reports about how swung flies don't work in the cold, but rest assurred Greg got me casting correctly and into fish; I knew I was a fool for believing everything I read. The Senyo sculpin is now fully loaded in my fly boxes it was a hot ticket on a rather cold day, I would not be on any trib without them. thanks for a great day and a fantastic fly pattern."
