Scud Patterns for Trout

May 12, 2020 By: Spencer Durrant

Whenever Pat Dorsey talks fly patterns, the angling world listens. With spring runoff underway, lots of us need what he’s recently said in Fly Fisherman Magazine about scud patterns for trout.

Give the piece a read and add some of Dorsey’s patterns to your box this spring. Nymphs are the name of the game right now, and I haven’t met a trout yet that doesn’t like a scud.
