Default Brown Trout Candy

I love softhackles, and this section of the river I fish is loaded with Scuds/Sows. So I was thinking why not combine the two. To add a little more spice to this, Hot Pink or Fl. Orange are great key colors.
I prefer the UTC thread as it lays flat and doesn't change color.
This pattern was introduced to me from a good friend Friday while on the river as I watched him pul fish after fish in (Thanks Steve)
HOOK: Scud Hook (I like Mustad C49S) 12 to 24
THREAD: Bright color (Orange, Pink, Red)
BODY: Fine Dubbing (Olive, Grey, Tan, etc)
HACKLE: Smaller size in body matching color

Click the image to open in full size.

Cover the hook with thread as this will show through when wet.

Wrap the dubbing light and try not to top wraps

Add hackle same as tying a Wet Fly

Finished

Again when this is wet, the thread color shows through, and a great effect.
I fish this with a floating line in slower moving water in a drift fashion. It will be more sub surface. I do not add weight at all.
Hardyreels, Pocono and futuramille like this.

Looks like a cool fly. It will be getting tested on some Driftless Area streams soon!

I'm a soft hackle fan, too. That one of yours (Steve's) looks nice!

I'll bet it would fish well without the hackle; spikey dubbed body like you have with the thread color showing through.

By the way, I'm using your "transformer" technique on the nymphs that I'm tying up for Mark's Nymph Swap #2.
