Default scud dubbing

I can't seem to find a good scud dubbing that with the use of a dubbing brush, creates legs. what brand and type do you guys use for this?

Also, there's a fly that I've heard locally (ozarks) called the UV dubbing scud. what dubbing is used in this fly? and is UV dubbing just a sparkly dubbing or does it have some thing to do with UV rays.

thanks for the help

check out the czech nymph fly swap going on now. i like to use angora goat hair for the throat.
you can also use a dubbing loop tool.

With scuds, I usually will just split my thread and make a dubbing loop. I generally use SLF's scud/sowbug blends.

The other thing that you can do to create some real buggy looking legs is make a dubbing loop with partridge feathers. Wrap that around the fly, flip the shellback over it, rib it, and you have one seriously buggy fly.

If you're interested in this, I'll be back next week and can do a step by step for you.

There are several manufacturer's that make a "UV" dubbing.

For example there is Hareline UV Ice dubbing, Hook & Hackle UV dubbing, & Frog Hair UV dubbing. There are also different brands of scud dubbing.

The "legs" on a scud pattern are basically long strands of dubbing material that have been pulled or brushed out after the fly has been dubbed and the shell back tied on. I use a nylon 22 caliber cleaning brush but any rough surface such as a piece of the hook section of velcro glued to a stick can be sued. Even a needle bodkin can be used.

UV dubbing reflects UV light that is invisible to us but visible to some fish. Personally I think it is the flash rather than the UV reflectance since adult trout lose most if not all their ability to see into the UV spectrum as they mature.

Thanks Silver, that's an interesting post. Do you know what the Deuteros, Protos, and Tri(tos) in those terms is referring to? I know the suffix an-opia means blind.
