  1. Cheers man. Great stuff. I see your through some of your “From the Vise” posts that your Chowtime Sculpin pattern appears to have evolved a bit. Would you mind updating on how you tie it now? Fall streamer season is so close!


    • Thanks Ryan! Yes, I’ll do an updated post on the different versions I tie – single hook and articulated with one hook. Should be out sometime in the next week or so.
