Scuds

Recommended Posts

Very cool flies and step by step. The first trout I caught when I moved to Nova Scotia was on a scud. It was made out of a strip of a sandwich bag, a partridge feather I found for legs and body with a bit of orange wool as an egg sack. I used a piece of red sewing thread for a rib.

 

I read an article about scuds, saying that they are clear and take on the colour of the food they digest. They also change colours as they die, turning an apricot colour. I will try to find the article tomorrow and post the info given

Hi Alex C,

First for this parachute:

At first step I tie three black hair from jackal tail.The body is a coils of light tan thread colour with orange marker and ribing with black thread.After that I deposit fine layer varnish.When varnish well dry I mount wing from fine sheaf white antron.Then fix the hackle feather,dub thorax with olivebrown hare's ear dubbin and tie hackle around wing.

-----------------

After two days I will tie caddis larva and take photos for step by step.

 

 

regards,

Michael
