Gilbert Rowley from FlyTying123 shows us how to tie the Scudmarine, a very effective steelhead nymph pattern.
It may not be well known that steelhead are fond of pink scud patterns, but apparently it’s true (you did notice the beautiful steelhead at the beginning of the video, right?). Gilbert’s good friend and Fly Fishing Team USA member Devin Olsen tipped him off four years ago and he has been using them since.
Tie up a few and give’em a try!
p.s. If you are looking for more great steelhead videos FlyTying123 recommends:

Fly Fishing Steelhead for Beginners – Part 3 – Nymph Fishing for Steelhead
This is Part 3 in the series, “Nymph Fishing for Steelhead”. Techniques shown here are used on many rivers in the Western US including the Methow, Wenatchee, Klickitat, Deschutes, John Day, Grande Ronde, and many more. It is very effective and similar to the fly fishing tactics used for trout. In this video, a Switch Rod and a Wulff Ambush Line was used.
