Scudz, Scudz, and More Scudz

The Putnam group rolled into town last week for their annual fishing trip. They've definitely been one of those groups I've looked forward to fishing with over the years and appreciate Sneaky Pete introducing me to them. The conditions were a little tougher this year than what they're used to but we definitely got them some good fish. AGAIN, the psuedos are still the predominate bug outside of the midges on the upper stretch and with the sun and wind, dries are pretty much out. However, there is still a lot of grass in the river and still a lot of these guys.

Now, scuds aren't a big secret on any tail-water. It's kind of the main staple of fish; especially when there aren't a lot of other bugs. They are, however, probably the most forgotten trout food in the water and I know of a lot of guys that have come back to the fly shops with their heads down because they didn't think to throw them.

Keep 'em where they live...
