It’s Scud Time

Scuds have been effective on the South Platte River and other tailwater across the US. I have fooled some of my biggest trout on guide trips with a Dorsey’s Orange UV Scud. They are produced by Umpqua Feather Merchants and are available at a the Blue Quill Angler and other speciality fly shops throughout the United States. To purchase some of Dorsey’s UV Scuds see the link below.
