Fly Tying

Whew! Wont tie them for a while

Recommended Posts

Taz, a sow bug is like a rolly polly but it lives in the water, about a week ago while at Taney I gave the wife a little entomology lesson and took a couple picks too.


Here is a good one of a sow bug.

And with this you can see the difference between the sow in the first pic and these two scuds, also make a note of the box of flies with a pink "middle" to them I am assuming that he is replicating a scud with a baby sac it tends to be pinkish to rather orange, the color is not so great in the pick but you can see it if you look at the one towards the top of the cup.

Hope that helps you out.
