What is your winter (Dec.- Feb.) go to fly? Only One
Scuds are tiny crustraceans that live in lakes and rivers in this region...they kind of resemble shrimp, and vary in size. ive seen some pretty big ones in rivers, up to what looks like a size 12, and some downright tiny ones in lakes....like a size 24. they are usually grey or olive in color, and as stated turn orange, amber, or pinkish when they die...they are a good chunk of food available to fish year around, and i find them fairly consistant producers on just about any colorado tailwater. They are my favorite fly on rivers like Wyoming's North Platte.Hatchmaster said:Every one keeps saying scud this and scud that. But honestly I don't know if I know what one is. I think I have some, do they look like little fuzzy shrimp? In all my years fly fishing I have never used one. I better give it a try!
