  1. This Caddis utilizes CDC feathers that have been used already on other flies. Many times (with quite a few patterns) you will use just the tip of the CDC feather. Therefor you have almost an entire feather unusable for your following flies. But I utilize a clip to get all the goodness from each feather I can. You can use other colored CDC here as well to create different colored caddis. Its easy to tie, and floats super high because of the CDC. And best of all, no need to use floatant as CDC has a natural oil in it that keeps it afloat. Get creative with different feathers for your wings and create whatever type of caddis fly you want. The review of these chip clips came out earlier this week, if you want to see that video and a closer detail of the clips, you can view that here... https://youtu.be/Wp-dAzGLmHs Materials--------- Hook: Risen barbless dry fly 100, size 14 Thread: Veevus 16/0, in black Body: Stripped CDC Dubbing Wing: Hen Saddle Hackle: CDC Feathers Head Cement: Solarez Ultrathin UV Resin Just letting you know, even though I did not use someone else pattern to create this fly (basically just came up with it on my vise), that does not mean someone else has not come up with this pattern or something close to it in the past. I didn't go off of other's patterns for this, but I am sure somewhere along the way I probably saw something similar to this. If you know of a pattern similar, or the same that has already been tied, don't hesitate to let me know. Just keep in mind, I am in no way trying to steal someone elses pattern, so I would appreciate you not getting angry, just simply tell me where you have seen it before, and Id be happy to mention that fly here in the description section. With so many different patterns out there, someone probably has come up with a fly like this before, and it might even be a fairly common pattern. Just not one Ive personally took note of in the past. Thank you!
  2. Hi, Here my new fly tying video; subscribe to my YouTube channel!, https://youtu.be/0-Vp2_hWLBc
  3. Hello and salutations, I am new to the forum, can't wait to dive in! If I may pose a question...? Is there anyone who knows how to procure bulk natural CDC (no dies, no sorting, just bulk)? thanks for having me cheers, David
  4. So this fly is relatively easy to tie, except for splitting the thread. You really need to use a thread like UTC Ultra Thread which is very flat and splits easily. These flies dont float quite as well as some other CDC flies out there, but they float well enough, and are perfect for a hopper dropper, or larger (better floating) fly as the lead. Its a very effective fly for those trout looking to feast on smaller midges and baetis emerging. As always here is a list of materials used on this fly. Hook: TMC 100bl in size 16 Thread: UTC Ultra Thread 70 in brown Body: Turkey Biot in Olive Hot Spot: 2mm Fly Foam in Red Wing: CDC in natural dun Cement: Hard as Hull head cement
  5. CDC is one of my favorite materials for emergers or dry flies when tying small tiny flies. Buying hackle that small can cost a fortune, but CDC tends to be better priced. And you can save the tip ends and use them for dubbing, or other techniques with emergers and dries. This fly takes a few things from other flies ive seen and combines them to form this flashy and effective fly. The CDC wing sits right at the surface of the water film, with the rest of the fly hanging down into the water, enticing trout to bite. This was one of my most effective flies on my last trip. As always here is a list of materials I used on the fly. Hook: Firehole sticks #317 in size 20 Thread: Veevus 10/0 in black Tail: Polyproplene yarn Ribbing: 1/100th pearl flashabou Hot Spot: Yellow Goose Biots Floating Wing: CDC feathers in black Dry Dubbing: Superfine Dubbing Black Flash Dubbing: Ice Dubbing Peacock Resin: Solarez "Thin Hard" Resin Usually I epoxy the head of the fly, but I did forget this time while filming. I will paint on some thin resin, then whip finish the resin into the head. Then cure it. You could do the same with any head cement.
  6. Hi Everyone, In this weeks video I'm tying Hans Weilenmann's iconic CDC & Elk. If you like the video please hit the like button and hit subsicribe I'm going to have a new video coming out every week. Also, if you have anything you want to see from flies to materials/tools and set up let me know. https://youtu.be/-v_5R15Z2gA Thanks, Mike Designed 2 Deceive
  7. I know my request is probably out of the ordinary, but it would really mean the world to me to have more materials for fly tying. My specialty is the Spanish wet fly or Mosca de ahogada, now that I'm deployed I start acquiring knowledge about flyting but sometimes is overwhelming because here I had a few materials, and so many patterns that I want to tie but logically it's limited for the materials that I have available. Matter of fact today I Finnish the last piece of atron and and I improvise and pull the stuff from the old couch where we are doing guard and use the insides lol it works. The paycheck of a soldier is not so great. Lol but I love my job, I'm the only CBRN in my Battery at the moment. Sometimes it can be a little stressful due to the demanding work, inspections, and drills but having a fulfilling pastime really helps and in part is quite therapeutic as many of you probably know. Recently 4 start general Austin gift me a coin to show me his appreciation for a good job and hard work ethic. Thank you for considering my request. We have a APO address so is like send something to any state of US even if we are in other countries. You are free to ask anything, please don't hesitate and let me know. I would love to send you a letter as well giving you the proper appreciation for being such a great supporter with your donation. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

  8. The CDC Dry Fly Midge is a perfect imitation for a midge hatch. These tiny flies are fairly easy to tie if you have good eyes, and do really well tandem behind a Griffith's gnat or larger dry fly. They are also really quick to tie, so you can make up dozens of them in an hour for your next trip. Don't be caught off guard by the next midge hatch! keep these in your box at all times! Hook: Daiichi 1110 size 26 (any 1x length dry fly hook will work) regularly tied from size 20-32. Thread: 8/0 thread in black, or any color you want to tie this in. Regularly tied in gray, brown, olive and cream. Hackle: The top feathers of a dry fly cape. These are very small hackle feathers, specifically for small midge flies. Wings: CDC Feathers. I used "natural dun" color, but common colors are white, brown, and gray. Music: Sunny, ukulele - Bensound.com
  9. Here is one nice Caddis pattern... Deer hair, CDC and Organza combined together. I don't remember where this pattern originally came, but this is my version from it... I¨ll hope you guys like it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fEbXYCtPnQ
  10. Does any body have any good effective CDC patterns. I bought a bag of dark dun CDC and realized that I have no patterns for it. I've seen it under the elk wing on an elk hair caddis but wanted to tie some other things. All is appreciated. Thanks.
  11. Thread: Sheer 14/0 White Hook: Kamasan B100 #12 Body: Polishquills Stripped Peacock Eye Orange Thorax: SLF Squirrel Wing: White CDC
  12. Hook: TMC 100BL #16 Thread: Sheer 14/0 Body: Hareline Hare’s Ear Brown/Dark Olive, Hareline Hare’s Ice Dub Rusty Orange Wing: CDC & Deer in different colors This is a favorite of mine: a simple, but very effective CDC&Deer. Slowly filling up my box, this time with smaller versions of this dryfly on a BL hook
  13. Some CDC that I got from some mallards that I shot.
  14. Hello. New here, and to fly tying, so i have many Qs. Well, I had this plain domestic chicken cock of beautiful colours, and I killed him and skinned him. I want to preserve as much as I can. On the but section there are feathers similar to CDC feathers. I know they do not float the same as CDC, and that they get soaked really fast, but has anyone used them at least as dubbing for wets, or something like that. Are they good for anything at all, or am I just wasting time and hopes, or will just have to find out by myself through experimenting? Write about feathers from other regions of domestic chickens too - what do YOU use them for. Thanks in advance. Gecko.
