Re: Stillwater Trout Flies
I'll play. I will tie up a scud pattern I have had some luck with. Not sure it has a name other then a scud pattern. I have had decent luck with chartruese and (believe it or not) pink. I think the pink was being mistaken for blood midges or shrimp of some kind, I did hear there were blood midges showing up in a fishing report I read about two days after I fished the lake.
I have been wanting to tie up some more pink ones for myself, but ran out of clear and pink scudback material, this will give me a good excuse to go get some more. I have some dark olive on hand still and this works good as backing for the chartruese version.
I will leave it up to you all if you want chartruese or pink or I could tie up half and half and go luck of the draw.
