May 19th Fly Tying Forum – CDC Parachute with Split Thread Technique

May 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

  • This event has passed.


Our next Forum is Wednesday, May 19th.  We will continue with Split Thread Technique.  This time will will tie a CDC parachute; that is the wing will be CDC.  Below is the recipe.  You may substitute as necessary. For expample, your wing post can be foam, as noted below, or you can use Poly para post or CDC feathers as we have done in the past.  I will discuss both materials.  The important element is split thread with CDC.  I think you will really enjoy tying and fishing this fly.

Hook: Dry fly BL. Experiment. You may use an Emerger, Klinkhammer. #16 or smaller

Thread: Olive. Must be flat! 70 denier

Body: Thread or material of your choice; duck quills, Polish quills, etc.

Wing post: Wapsi Foam Cylinders 1/16 dia.  Substitute as you like. CDC feathers, poly para post, McFlylon, ect.

Wing: CDC. Dun color any shade.

Neal Hoffberg is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
