CDC is an amazing natural material for tying flies. Take a good old Pheasant tail, put it on a jig style hook and add some CDC and you have a very fishable fly! This pattern is a must for any fly angler. A very forgiving fly that gives good reason that a soft hackle pheasant tail is Patagonia’s founder Yvon Chouinard favorite fly (although I believe he favors the partridge soft hackle version). Fish it in dead drift style or swing it for deadly presentations and you will be very pleased!
