I have obtained a magic tool made by Mark Petitjean.
The magic tool itself is not to bad to work with.The problem is getting ahold of the proper cdc and pardo to make it work like he uses on the dvd he makes.
My point is after shopping around a lot to save someone else a lot of time
talk to the guys at feathercraft or badger creek to get the rite stuff to make the tool work for you the regular run of the mill cdc off the shelf does not work because it is too sparse and too short for the tools.
I hope this little ditty helps someone. bs.gif

I bought some CDC from Green Caddis and it had a nice mix of feathers. Some tufts and some of the longer ones for the use you're describing. I found that using the smaller table works best.

It also does a nice job on fur wets and nymphs. I like it!
I know where they live, I know what they eat. Now it's time to fool them with thread, feathers and roadkill.
