Olive Brown Scud

Underwater footage and full tying SBS. Scuds are everywhere in salt- and freshwater – and they are active year round. Most fish have a close relationship to these small critters, and you should as well. In this video I tie a super simple scud, that you can tie in a few minutes. No bells and whistles - but it gets the job done. Traditionally Gammarus or scud imitations are tied on hooks with some kind of curve. Often a very pronounced C-shape. That makes sense. When you see these crustaceans resting, they are curved – as you can see in the photos. But when swimming, they have a nearly straight back. Still slightly curved, buy nowhere near the shape of a resting scud. See filmclips and photos illustrating this in the video.
Thanks for watching :0)

Long story short

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.
