sculpin tie for tube

Anyone have a good tie for a sculpin tube - thinking of throwing it on some of my Montana rivers like the Jeff and the Big Hole.
Many thanks,
Tom Donnelly

You can pretty much tie up any standard Sculpin pattern on a tube. I do a Mudder variation for the Bow river in Alberta. Bow river Bugger and Mike Mercer's Rag Sculpin, Woolhead/Bunny variations with rabbit strips should work great for you.

Often I have been exhausted on trout streams, uncomfortable, wet, cold, briar scarred, sunburned, mosquito bitten, but never, with a fly rod in my hand have I been in a place that was less than beautiful.

I really like the Kiwi Muddler. I tie mine with an barred olive magnum strip, mylar tubing for the body and a tungsten cone head. The mylar tubing would slip right over the tube also which would make the tying a lot easier then trying to slip it over the hook.
