CDC and Elk

This is my version of the classic (from hans Weilleman i think) which accounted for the majority of the fish we caught from the Wye. As with all the flies I tie I keep it as simple as possible so that when my bloody Father gets his filthy mits on it and sticks it in a tree I am not too upset. I tie them in a range of sizes and change the dubbing colour to try and match the sedges hatching.


Hook, Tiemco 103BL size 19
Thread, UTC brown
Abdomen, Superfine Dubbing, Tan
Underwing, Khaki CDC
Thorax and Overwing, Spun deer hair
