Danica CDC and Mallard Drake

0 No tags Permalink

This model is a variant of Danica. You will see this wonderful ephemera tied in different ways. But these tied with CDC are really awesome!. Floats excellent, has a very realistic water print, perfect to cast and perfect to be presented in the front of big spooky trout!.
Hook: Maruto #10
Thread: UTC Camel color
Body Thread: Yellow body thread
Body: Yellow Troutline Ultra Selected CDC
Ribbing: Uni Brown body thread
Tail: 3-5 pheasant barbs from rooster tail
Hackle:Yellow Troutline Ultra Selected CDC combined with Natural Black CDC fixed in dubbing loop
Front Hackle: mallard Drake dyed with picric acid

Bellow are my favourite Danica flies. I like to use the one with Mallard Drake hackle on slow running waters and on the faster ones I like to use the Hare hackled version
