Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! I use this head to tie a salamander-ish looking pattern and it does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described These worked great to mimick the Gobie that dwell within the harbors. I use these heads to complete the fly pattern and get me down real where the big brown trout hide!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for sculpin patterns Anatomically correct shape for a sculpin head. Plus the fly gets deep quickly. Hook rides point up, reducing snags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Action Best trout day in 50+ years, on one fly. Super easy fly to tie with zonker strip. durable as heck and when the water catches it, the action is like a darting sulpen. Let it drift and it dives like it wants the bottom. The big trout hammered it. Try a sink line with it for best results. hard to cast in tight places, but figuring that out was fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic These heads are great. They look cool, easy to use, and they get the fly down. You can crawl it on the bottom or swim it back to shore. The brown trout over the weekend were nailing the olive sculpins I tied with these heads.
