This is a pattern like many that I’ve been working on that I have not fished yet (I started fly fishing/tying this past June). It should be interesting to see next season how I do trying the variety of flies I’ve been working on. This pattern has a good detailed description of the CDC application on the link below Flytiers.

  1. Great looking fly. Send me some and I’ll try them out for you 🙂

    I bet it would work down a few sizes.

    Great tie.

  2. Thanks. This was the first time I used CDC. I find myself questioning sometimes the amount of materials or length of wings. I’m sticking to a sparse rule and trying not to overdress. I guess it just comes with time and research.
