Here's one more to add to the list.

Star Scud

RECIPE
HOOK: Sizes 12 to 16 C49S Mustad
WEIGHT: Lead wire
THREAD: Tan 8/O
RIB: Fine gold wire.
BODY: H&H Rainbow sow scud dubbing
SHELL BACK: Stillwater Solutions calibaetis midge flex 1/8"

I came up with this pattern in 2005 after a day of fishing at Star Lake. After I came in, I decided to cast from the shore until dark and once dark was upon me I inspected the shoreline to see what nocturnal creatures were active. What I saw were thousands of scuds. Upon closer inspection in front of my headlights I noticed the color of the scuds being a tan color. I chose the rainbow scud dubbing for it's high sparkle qualities in hopes it would attract more trout. It worked and is currently my favorite scud pattern for any stillwaters I fish.
