CDC Parachute Flies

During this fly tying tutorial, I show a simple technique used for tying parachute CDC flies. This is an effective method that utilizes a great material to use with parachute dry flies, especially for those difficult fish in pressured water. With a little practice, this technique can be applied to your emerger patterns, and I believe will ultimately lead to more fish.

During this video, I referenced a website to learn more about CDC feathers; you can view the information here:

The dubbing loop tool that I used during this video was made by Stonfo, an Italian-based company. Information about this Rotodubbing Elite can be found at the following link:
