    That was a really well done video, and a good looking bug.

    I like how he lightly brushed the cement onto the dubbing to keep the legs stiff and sticking outward. Neat little trick.

    Nice flies allarchers. I do an epoxy back scud I like pretty well too.

    Those are great allarchers. Makes me want to kick all of mine to the curb.

    I fish Spring Creek in PA and use a similar bug with black thread across the back. The flashy material he uses my make them stand out a little better.

    Trout333, I think your search is over. You aren't going to do any better than the Scuds that allarchers showed. Those have got to be a killer.

    Finely tied indeed! I love that mottled look. What kind of scud back is that?

    Only thing that bothers me (this isn't going to make sense at first) is that it is too realistic. What is to separate your fly from all the naturals? Something like light (contrasting) biot antennae or small/medium brassie wire wrapped up the body would help make this pattern "perfect" for me. But that is just the way I feel confident about the flies I tie and fish.
