Spawn Fly Head Articulated Trout Streamer (The NUMBSKULL)
By: Jesse Males
When I first found out that you could catch big hungry trout on a 5-7” articulated streamer pattern I knew I was going to fall in love with tossing these big old flies downriver. Big streamer flies have long been my passion both in saltwater and for bass fishing, and now more recently for trout!
The NUMBSKULL is an articulated trout fly that is finished off with the Spawn Fly Head and is meaty enough to drive big hungry trout absolutely bonkers!
Below is an HD Step-by-Step fly tying video that takes you through the steps you need to whip up some of these bad larry’s for your next fishing trip!
