Basically what Marko has said.

One thing to note, some people tie their scuds with a curved hook, traditionally called a scud hook...but if you look closely, live scuds swim with their bodies straight. The only curved bodied ones are the dead scuds. Something to think about. I use a Tiemco 5262 hook to tie mine.

:beerchug: Good luck BTW.

Stone, thats a good point about them becoming straight when they swim. I have never thought about that.

I like CDC legs- i think they move most closely to naturals.

They eat algae and detritus, so you will find them in areas where algae grows or where plants decay. I normally fish them in shallower parts of the lake on a floating line and weighted pattern.
