Matuka Sculpin Perch (Swap Entry)

This is my entry for the warmwater fly swap. For lack of a better name, I've called it a Matuka Sculpin Perch. It is my attempt to copy a very effective fly that I found while fishing one day. I made some minor changes and used slightly different materials, but my version will hopefully be just as productive as the original.

Hook: Size 6, 4X long streamer hook
Thread: Olive
Ribbing: 28 Gauge Brass Wire
Body: Green and Yellow Plastic Canvas Yarn (specific colors were medium avacodo and honey gold); Red Thread
Wing/Tail: Olive Grizzly Hackle
Fins: Olive Grizzly Hackle
Throat: Orange Fluorofibre
Collar/Head: Olive Deer Body Hair

Here's the original fly (top) along with profile and bottom views of the copy.
