CDC no Hackle Quill



The tie:
#14 Hanák 130 BL hook
Tan 8/0 UNI thread
Red game rooster hackle fibres for tail
Peacock quill for body
Black musk rat dubbing for thorax
CDC wing

Only after seeing the enlarged pic of the fly after I took the photo I noticed that the thread shows through. Since I did not see this when looking at the actual fly I hope the fish will not notice either :-)
I plan to use this one on long, leisurly glides in late spring, with the wing greased with CDC oil and the body trapped in surface film.
