The Global FlyFisher - The Largest and Best Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
20% of a trout's diet in still waters, at any time of the year, will be made up by scud (freshwater shrimp).
This pattern takes a few key features that trout key in on including the use of an orange bead to represent eggs. Pearl UV dubbing is integrated for extra flash and visibility.
We've tied this on a Mustad C49s which has a bend but also results in a relatively straight fly, which is important as scuds are relatively straight when swimming, and are curved at rest.
Tie them in colours and sizes to suit your local conditions, fish them on a floating line with a long leader or a clear intermediate line.
Thanks for watching!
