CDC 'n Quill Spent



The tie:
#14 Hanák 103BL hook
tan UNI 8/0 thread
Coq de León tail
Peacock quill with a drop of tying lacquer for durability
One CDC feather for thorax cover / wing splitting
Two CDC feathers spun in loop and cut to shape

Fish on rivers that I frequent are seldom too selective, so I could get good results with a general suggestive pattern, like a Hare's Mask Emerger with gold rib; on the other hand I truly like the delicacy and fragility of the spinners. Tying them brings up fond memories of warm summer evenings...
