I'm always confused by what size scud hook correlates to a regular shank dry fly hook. Just ask Antonio. I know he gets tired of me asking him. Is there a chart?

Posts: 560They should tell you on the box....1x short, or 2x short meaning 2 hook sizes.
But how far around the shank do you apply body material? I consider this slightly arbitrary.
