    Default KG's SPRING CREEK SCUD - Fly of the week - May 23, 2011

    KG's SPRING CREEK SCUD

    As is often said regarding fly patterns, very little is original nowadays. This pattern is very similar to most scud-type flies being tied today, with perhaps the major difference being the use of Krystal Flash for the ribbing, as well as custom blended dubbing to match the colors of the natural scuds in my home-water spring creek. One of the challenges when tying flies that are fished sub-surface is that of getting the color of the dry dubbing blend correct so that when it gets wet the color change that occurs fits the true bug being imitated.

    Good looking fly Kelly. Great work on the write up. I need to get a few of those tied up for sure.

    Kelly was generous enough to send me a couple scuds (along with some parasol emergers and a few other very nice flies). Now that he's provided the SBS I don't have to de-construct one; they go into the "For Display Only" collection, along with a John Scott F.E.B. Hopper, a Sparkle Dun tied by Craig Mathews and a Super Bugger from Barry Beck.

    Regards,
    Scott
