The Orange Scuds fly

Scuds make up to 20% of a seatrouts diet. So fly fishermen should be getting up close and personal with scuds.

To choose a scud pattern, pull up some weeds and see if you find any and then choose a fly that matches the size and color of what you’ve found. The scud fly is not a magic bullet, but it is a reliable go-to option that should be part of every fly angler’s arsenal.

Tying materials:

Hook: TMC 2457 #6
Back part: Red red, copper wire 
Front part: Red fluorescent dubbing

Step by step seatrout fly tying tutorials are available on my Youtube Channel.
