This is a simple fly that’s a great point fly on a Czech nymph rig, as well as a good weight fly on an indicator rig. Pink, Orange, and Chartreuse are our best colors locally, but tie to suit your local fish. Size 12 is a good starting point!
The Hunchback Scud, a great scud pattern from Michael McLellan. The Hunchback Scud features a superb profile and weighted enough to get down deep. This is a relatively easy tie and it works great. The toughest part of the tying sequence is attaching the lead weight to the top of the hook shank.

Chewee Scud Pattern
This is a pattern that I have tied for quite some time, but it has been updated with a new material- UV Chewee Skin. Big fish love scuds. I fish this in our local tailwater and it works great. Typically I tie scuds in sizes 12-14. My favorite colors for the Chewee Scud Pattern are olive and orange.
