Fly Tying SBS - CDC Nymph

In this fly tying tutorial, we concentrate on a nymph, that is very successful all over the year.

This golden orange color is a winner in my home water, the Isar river and the CDC ("cul de canard") hackle provides movement underwater. 

This fly can vary in different aspects. Some tend to use lead wire instead of a tungsten bead or change the pheasant tail to flash fibers. It's good to carry different sizes of this fly with you, depending on how big the caddis larva are in your river, that this fly should simulate.

Again this is not a super tricky fly, but it catches fish and we will provide more difficult  flies for the future. We're always open for flies that you'd like us to tie, just leave us a message.
