Fish Skull Sculpin Helmets – 8 Pack
Comes with stick-on real eyes!
Flat and broad profile that imitates common bottom-dwelling fish species such as sculpins, gobies and baby catfish.
Simply tie in all materials first, then fit the Sculpin Helmet from the front. Quick and easy to use.
Allows for use on both hook and tube flies.
Included in a corresponding size and color, these ultra-realistic eyes act as an important trigger for predatory game fish.
Distributes most of the helmet’s weight to the bottom of the streamer, ensuring it will swim in the correct position. This also allows you to tie with the hook facing either down or up. We have deliberately made the Sculpin Helmet significantly heavier than the Baitfish Head so that it will sink quickly in fast moving rivers and fish deeper near the bottom where sculpins typically live.
Available in Chocolate & Olive.
Fits hook sizes #10, #8, #6, #4, #2.
Fits hook sizes #6, #4, #2, #1.
Fits hook sizes #2, #1, 1/0, 2/0.
Tie heavyweight streamers with realistic, flat and broad profiles; the perfect imitation for common bottom-dwelling fish species such as sculpins, gobies and baby catfish. Designed for use on both hook and tube streamers, the Sculpin Helmet has a weighted keel to keep your streamer swimming hook-up and avoid snagging.
How To Use
After tying in all your materials, complete the streamer by simply fitting the Sculpin Helmet from the front and finish off by tying a small thread dam between the skull and the hook eye.
1. Start by building your streamer; tie in all the tail, body and wing materials. Wrap a small thread-head and tie off your thread. Make sure you leave a generous gap between your thread-head and the eye of the hook to have room to fit the helmet.
2. Coat your thread wraps lightly with some Zap-A-Gap or similar glue and then fit the helmet from the front of the streamer. Position in place and make any final adjustments to your materials.
3. Re-attach your tying thread between the helmet and the eye of the hook and wrap a thread-dam to lock the helmet firmly in place. Tie off and cement the thread wraps.
4. Finish the streamer by sticking on the Living Eyes.
