Fly Tying with Ryan – Tungsten Czech Scud by Hans Stephenson

This is a simple fly that’s a great point fly on a Czech nymph rig, as well as a good weight fly on an indicator rig. Pink, Orange, and Chartreuse are our best colors locally but tie to suit your local fish. Size 12 is a good starting point!

The Pink Squirrel has been a staple in the driftless region for quite some time now, and this hybrid with a Sexy Walt’s is a fantastic fly for opportunistic small stream trout. This makes a great attractor nymph in larger sizes, and in smaller sizes, it’s a great dropper below a hopper or terrestrial!

Rainy’s Slider Heads make a great topwater pattern, as well as fishing on a heavy sinking line. We’ve had great luck fishing this pattern on a heavy sinking line like the SA Sonar Titan series. Let the line sink almost all the way to the bottom and start retrieving – the buoyant foam head will keep your fly out of the weeds, but near the bottom where the fish are. This is a great topwater pattern fished on a floating or intermediate line as well! This fly is a 4/0 with a medium head.
