Harry,

You could probably use scuds to imitate those guys. I cant tell what size they are from the picture but if you used a long shank hook of the correct length and just tie a scud on it I think you would have a winner.

the are about half an inch in lenght. i was too thinking about a scud on a regular hymph hook, maybe a tmc 200r.

Study some of the Mysis patterns that are fished in tailwaters.
