    heres a photo of a sowbug,, you may get by tying like the scud, but try some different tan dubbing, leave off the rib, and put on the double tail.. match the size sold in shops on the river your going to.. good luck dave..

    I sent an e-mail to the Big Horn Trout Shop and those guys gave me the receipes. I really didn't expect that. They have always been very helpful and I'd recommend them to anyone going to the Big Horn River in Montana to drop in.

    Oh, hre's the receipes.

    Sorry the reply didn't come out as I thought it would. Newbie error. So maybe this will be more readable.
