The plastic sleeve that your newspaper comes in also makes great scudback.

And for an extremely simple yet effective scud in sizes 18 and smaller you can just wrap fine chenille, which on these smaller hooks does pretty good job of imitating legs. Dont forget you can tie a few scuds on standard nymph hooks too.

Now I feel like I have to retie my scuds. Mute's put mine to shame.

The flies do look realistic, but it only matters how they look to the trout. Do I think they will catch fish? Yes I do, and that's all that really matters.

Wow, my scuds look like crap compared to those. I have just been using size 14-16 scud hooks weighted with wire, then dubbed, plastic bag back pulled over, ribbed, tied off. I haven't tried any of my self-tied flies yet. I guess im just too scared. Also I haven't been fishing over the winter, so I haven't really been tying either.

Keep in mind, those scuds in the up close picture (the second post) are staight off Graham Owen's site.

See: Graham Owen

Not to start anything mute, but I think people are making false assumptions.
