Tying a Simple Scud

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tim Flagler demonstrates how to tie a simple Scud pattern, using a size 16 hook and an Antron-and-Australian-possum-blend dubbing not just for the body, but for the legs and antennae as well.

“Scuds are crustaceans, and they’re a favorite food source for trout in lakes and streams.  They range in size from about an 8 to the ridiculously small.  Although the naturals are often associated with weedbeds, I’ve found trout will take their imitations just about anywhere, particularly on overcast days.”
