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 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.
