Jointed flies are becoming more and more popular because they offer something traditional flies can’t; realistic or exaggerated movement. This sculpin is tied up by Erik Rambo in a great step by step sequence. I would change the size of the back hook to a shorter shank hook if I try tying this one. The shorter hook will offer a better hook rate than the longer shanked hooks. By using the shorter shank hooks, the fly works more like a tube fly, allowing you to tie a large fly and use a short shank.
Eumer has the right idea by putting the pro-staff to work and supporting its product with instruction. Start your education by going to http://eumertube.com/classroom.php. Eumer offers a vast array of tubes that may be confusing or even intimidating to the uninitiated tyer. Video and images are available in the classroom to help guide students to the correct use of each type. Some other basic tasks such as mounting the hook in the tube, using the tube vise and adding cones are also covered.
In addition to the basics, there is also fly tying instruction. The tying classes are divided into 3 skill categories and let the tyer choose form a good selection of tube patterns to mimic. Get schooled.
Here is a tutorial I did up 3 years ago. Wow, time flies. Anyhow, I was using a couple of these on the weekend and managed a couple bass on the black and red version (Black Widow). You can read the step by step tutorial byclicking here
