If I'm not mistaken sow bugs are different from scuds. I always thought of it as there are cressbugs and there are scuds. And that sowbugs were just another name for cressbugs.

This is what I use. I have caught a lot of fish, just dubbing both those Sow bug colors.

Not as pretty as OldLeftys, but it works. Then again everything he ties is perfect looking.

On the other hand, come on guys. I can't say I've ever seen what I would call a pretty cress bug pattern. Buggy's the word.

I could not agree more. It needs to create the illusion of life and pretty bugs don't cut it. Why do you think chewed up flies seem to catch more fish than freshly tied ones? Just ask H-A, my Stimmie is no longer pretty, in fact it's downright scraggly looking and it catches fish maybe better than right off the vise! Took me a long time to learn that (but we all know I'm a bit thick anyway) so cut down your learning curve and take this man's advice to heart!

ok, i wish i could take close up pictures with my 1998 2 mp digital camera... i would show you what they look like.

widdled out 2 colors, grey and tan. i guess the tan would be the walts worm made out of mink, very spikey and buggy looking.

the grey dubbing looks close but not as buggy, need to buy some of that dubbing you guys posted thanks!

the trick to that whole fly is the dubbing color IMO
but how do you know which is the right color and do they vary from stream to stream ?
or are they the same as any isopods that real pale grey
