Scud recipe and Fish

Scud hook 12-18
Thread to Match color
Commercial scud dubbing with flashy fibers

Tie on thin copper wire for the rib past the bend. Dub thick and loose and wind rib. Tie off rib and whip finish. Pick out legs, trim top and sides down to the rib. One can add a mylar flash back if the water is murky but otherwise leave it off. Color matters a great deal so I tie them in 8 colors in all 4 sizes. Fish is a 27" brown that took a size 18 orange scud.
