    One simple with coastal deer hair and CDC. The deer hair is tied down along the hook shank.

    Underwing dark brown antron and overwing partridge feather (the same feather is the front hackle).
    Methode for the Partridge Wing : A single barred partridge feather, wrapped once, tied forward, and then tied back over the body.

    Tob1, I finally got some CDC and was tying some caddis tonight with it. I have a question. How much CDC does it take to be effective as an additional floatant. I like the "buggy" effect it has but eg. elk hair caddis with normal pattern elements...how many barbs of CDC is needed to go past simply "buggy looking" and actually add noticable amounts of boyancy? I won't have a chance to hit any fast water for a couple weeks to test and want to tie a few successful good floaters, size 14 & 16 mostly, and don't like the look if I go to heavy with it.

    Normally I use 2-3 feathers on a fly. Do not use an ordinary floatant with CDC - the fibers will clump together and the fly will sink. Use CDC oil or floatant that is recommended for CDC. After a fish take, wash the fly in the river and let it dry. You may use Amadou or similar products for removing the water out the fly. Tip. Allways ultra (or similar womens product) is a nice product for removing the water from the fly. It is not the oil in CDC that make it float, it is the fibre structure in the the feathers , but the oil condition the fibres. Black CDC need CDC oil, since the coloring prosess remove all oil from the feathers. God CDC oil is Marck Petitjean CDC oil and HENDS CDC oil.
    Dry Shake and similar products also help.
    Hope this help.
