Purple Traitor Sculpin
by Steve Pels
A new color combination during the fall of 2017 definitely grabbed a few nice steelhead. Steve Pels’ Purple Traitor Sculpin also incorporates the use of a Trout Bead instead of a dubbing ball. Giving the fly a slightly different look and wobble in the water. The color purple is the new black, also with some Krinkle mirror flash a very fishy product used sparsely you get a great looking swung fly for steelhead.
Use a 1″ Cotter Pin, small silver lead eyes, and a wire loop for your trailer hook. Your first step is done and ready to assemble the Purple Traitor Sculpin
Tie in a Brown Barred Rabbit Strip for the tail.
