This is a killer little sowbug tied up by Hans. The doubled thin skin looks great on the pattern, and this would be perfect for stillwaters. Ostrich is wonderful for scuds and sows, and this will be a deadly fly dead drifted in tail waters as well.
This looks like bubble gum for trout. It’s a wild patterns the I’d love to try out. I do have on concern with the weight placement, as it will likely keel the hook, but, given that the fly will likely be suspended vertically for a stillwater application, that won’t matter too much. I love the color, and the gummy look. As always, Hans ties up a great looking fly.
Cassie Sulzby demonstrates tying Rainy’s Gold Bead-Back Scud, as simple scud pattern for targeting trout. I’ve tied thousands of scuds, but I have never seen one done quite like this. Take a look at Cassie’s technique for creating the dubbing legs on this scud. I like it, but i would try a stiffer dubbing like seal here, and perhaps add a bit into the body. This fly in yellow, tan, olive and browns is gonna be killer in the ponds. Thanks for sharing the technique!
