Tied by: Marcelo Morales
Originated by: Mr. Scott
Source: Streamer Fly Fishing in Fresh and Salt Water, Bates (1999) Pg. 362

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: Black 8/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel (optional)
Tail: Scarlet hackle tips
Body: Brown wool / antron dubbing
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Throat: Yellow hackle
Wing: Yellow bucktail
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: The Scott Special is a family pattern originating from the Scott family of Pittsburg, New Hampshire. The bucktail was was designed and fished for the Connecticut Lakes and Connecticut River of New England. It is touted to be a decent lure for trout species and has been successful in taking fish across the country. It is particularly effective in dark water and discolored waters, a bright beacon to draw in curious trout. Marcelo ties the fly with his stylized tapered wool body and precisely stacked bucktail wing. Marcelo tied this pattern for Paul Schmookler to be included in the massive streamer collection in 'Forgotten Flies'. A special thanks to Les Booth for his help in tracking down the pattern origins.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
