Default Re: What exactly are scuds?

Scuds are common in the alkaline lakes of southern B.C., eastern WA and OR, and probably elsewhere in the intermountain west. (Oddly, a similar-looking lake a few miles away may have few or none.) You'll usually see some in the shallows by the shore. Typically (as in Sandfly's photos) they're a half-inch long and a light grayish-green. Trout eat them by the gazillions.

I love scuds... I use them on several Northwest rivers as my back up when nothing else will work. I tie them on a #14 scud hook with a black beed. Wrap the shank with green tranparent ribbing then wrap a cream hackel. Trim the hackel off the top of the shank and you are ready to fish. It's an easy pattern and very effective.
