Fly Tying: Giant Isopod (Bathynomus Giganteus) Pattern (Super Scud)

Up from the depths of the Pacific and the Atlantic, this two + foot long creature looks like a super sized nymph. Called Bathynomus Giganteus, the creature was recently discovered on top after it attached itself to a submarine craft at 8500 feet! in the Gulf of Mexico near an oil rig and took the ride to the surface. Looks like a giant scud. Called horrifying, scary, monster….I will just call it a fascinating creature amongst all the marvels of the deep.

The little dude is carnivorous, feasting away on whales, sharks, squids on the ocean’s floor. Looks more like a sea creature than ol’ Montauk Monty.

Crank up the crab pot! Apparently they are somehow harvested enough to be consumed in Taiwan.
