Thread - Black 8/0

- Wrap slim thread body.
- Attach CDC tuft or strip CDC barbs from larger feather, wrap, fold back feather and wrap.
- Wrap a couple of turns of hackle and trim bottom
Alt Tying: Forget the hackle. Try various shades of light CDC (Tan,
White, Light Dun, etc.). Try brown or dark gray body. A few strands of brown Antron
as a trailing shuck?
Comments : A great midge pattern. If you have trouble seeing it, use it
as a second fly behind a larger indicator dry such as large Griffith's Gnat or Fuzzball to
imitate clustering midges. As with any CDC pattern, don't use floatant. A dry powder
desiccant works well with CDC.
