Here you go. I also tie it in olive, but make sure it's an olive dubbing that holds it's color and doesn't go too dark - I have to mix my own.
Here's a pic of the olive one I tie:
Spring Creek Scud
Hook: DaiRiki 125 size #14/12
Thread: 8/0 Amber - or olive
Tail: Amber dubbing - or olive
Rib: Pearl Krystal Flash
Shellback: Thin plastic bag strip - 1/8th inch for size #12 hook
Body: Amber dubbing – picked out and trimmed
Good luck and let me know how it works. I tie them in size 14 and 12. You may have to drop down a size or two depending on the water you're fishing.
I fish, therefore I am - but I gotta go to work first..."piscari ergo sum"
