Sow Scud Back

You have asked for a smaller size, now it is here!

Wapsi’s Sow Scud Back is a dyed, translucent, highly elastic material that is ideal for use on nymphs, scuds, sowbugs, crawfish, caddis, and midge patterns. Sow Scud Back can be used as a wing case, segmented abdomen or wrapped fully over the body of the fly. It is an essential material for tying Czech style nymphs.

Due to the overwhelming demand to add a small size we are pleased to announce the introduction of our 5/64″ (2mm) size. This size is perfect for tying size 16 – 24 flies and makes some of the most incredible midge patterns you have ever seen.

If you tie a lot of small flies then we believe you will find this a welcome addition to your collection of fly tying materials.

  • Great new size is ideal for size 16 and smaller flies
  • Very flexible and translucent
  • Available in 18 colors
