KORN'S WIRE HEAD SCUD - FOTW - Sep 24, 2012
KORN'S WIRE HEAD SCUD
This is a simple scud pattern that I developed back when I first started tying. I used wire wraps to form the heads of flies instead of beads. At the time, I didn't have any beads and it was far too expensive to have a wide assortment of different size beads. So, I just used heavy wire on my larger flies and medium wire on the smaller ones. Being able to vary the size of the wire and the number of wraps used to form the head gave me infinite adjustment on head size as-well-as the weight of my flies. I still tie my scuds this way today in; pink, orange, gray and olive as well.
Doug, a very beautiful pattern --- I hope you plan on submitting many more!
