Diamond Dub Scud

This is a fly I have been working on for a while now. I have had the pattern almost ironed out for over a year now, but I have been searching for a dubbing that really compliments the fly. I had been resorting to blending dubbings together but the flies were still missing something. I tied one with the diamond dub, and went out to test it. The fish loved it, so I tried it an various other colors as well. The 4 colors that have treated me the best are the 4 at the beginning of the video, all of them are tied exactly the same, except I change the color of the dubbing.

Materials I used in the video:
Hook: Dai-Riki scud hook (#14)
Thread: Daville flymaster plus 70 Denier Brown
Lead: .015 lead wire
Antenna: Partridge feather
Dubbing: Arizona Diamond Dub Hare's Ear (The other three are: Dark Hare's Ear, Tan, Oak)
Back: Mottled Thin Skin Oak
Segmentation: UTC Amber Small Wire
Resin: Loon Thick and Thin UV Resin

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.
