CDC Loop Wing Emerger

The CDC Loopwing Emerger is a simple little fly that floats in the surface and is built from just a single type 4 CDC feather and a little bit of Diamond Dub or Ice Dub. I form my loop on the front of the hook and don't require the feather to be trimmed leaving square edges. I tie the fly in olive, but yellow, pink, browns and black will also be coming off the vise.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
