  2. Great pattern. I am going to try one using some SF systhetics for the body and EP streamer brush for the head. My wife does not approve of alternative uses for our coffee grinder to make dubbing!

    Thanks for the kinds words on El Sculpito.

    Jim – If you take longer fibers and use two dog slicker brushes and rub them all together, you can blend it much better than with a coffee grinder.

    Tim – Those CCG eyes are the BOMB!

    Great tying… and excellent commentary. Maximum amount of info. / details with minimum amount of talking.
    concise…informative…no silly rock music. Like rock music but not in place of clear instructions.

    Good job Cheech….do more video….
    Only suggestion would be to provide alternative materials that you could substitute for your Congo hair?

    thanks again.

    Glenn – I have been thinking about a substitute material for the head and in smaller sizes I have used Arizona Simi Seal or Arizona Mega Simi Seal. It just needs to be a somewhat coarse dubbing with longer fibers.

    Great looking fly, Cheech! Should work a treat on the local creek.
    Congo hair is a product of the Fly Tyers Dungeon, and The Mad Scientist that runs it.
    Generous portions of materials at rock bottom prices. He’s not the middle-man, he’s the manufacturer.
    Order one of his gift boxes for even better prices.

    Kirk (A very satisfied customer.)

    Very nice pattern I make sculpins made with moose mane and the under fur from it. The results are very similar to this one!

    The color is “bronzeback” You can find all of the colors at http://www.azflyfishing.net I also tie with most of the other colors. AZ simi seal is by far my favorite dubbing for all kinds of stuff.
