Sow Bug

A sow bug is more like the aquatic version of the little roly poly bug you may have played with as a child. Sow bugs are very similar to the scud, except they have no swimmers and can only crawl around in the moss and rocks. Like the scud, if it is knocked loose from its hiding place it floats with the current which tells us that it must be fished under a strike indicator, which moves it along at the same speed of the current.
