Default CDC & Hare Emerger

Not a massive fan of the old CDC these days for various reasons, but I knocked a few of these up today for a friend who's off to New Zealand next week... ****. Anyway, was rather taken with the simplicity of this one, and the 'eat me' factor, and I'll be knocking a few up for myself. Will be used on the Rivers in NZ, but I'll be giving it some leader time on stillwater this season.

Have a good trip, Darren... 'mate'

Rob

That is one exquisitely tied emerger. Not only will that do damage on my trip, it will undoubtedly fool the most wily Manton Bay inhabitant!

Thanks mate.

Lovely simple fly.

Seems you've pushed a new boundary with the photo too -floating fly with shadow- never seen that done before, very clever. One day I will take a photo as good as that, it may take me a while though!

I've fell out with CDC a bit over the last couple seasons. Maybe because it's a victim of its own success, I seem to spend a disproportionate amount of time de-sliming and drying it. Deer Hair Emergers are gradually taking over their place in my box.

Thanks for posting

Phil

A proven recipe.....but CDC? Rob?? What's going on there...didn't think you owned any of the stuff. Did you nip out back a pluck a couple of mallards off the lodge?

I have a v similar fly with the butts of the cdc exposed like yours, which I tied on size 18s and 20s to imitate pale watery olives. Then a few years later I got told it's actually a 'JT olive' or a JL 'single plume tip'! Point I'm trying to make, is it's a very good template, that lots of anglers arrived at more or less simultaneously as a dun/emerger imitation - I've no doubt your version will work in NZ.

Does you mate have a good stock of 'Ghandi's Flip Flop' Cicadas with him for his trip?

Thanks, Phil. I've done the 'floating fly' once or twice before.. maybe you just didn't like the sound of the fly name and didn't bother to have a look Smoke, mirrors and Photoshop, mate.. nowt clever.

Yeah.. slime, snot, blood + CDC = The beauty of this one though, is that they're so quick and easy to tie, I'll gladly bin each one that gets a fish and gets slimed up, and quickly tie on another. Also less faff to tie in smaller sizes than a DHE.

I found some, eventually, burried underneath some Swannundaze

I consider myself a big fan of CDC - and your emerger really does hit the spot! The buggy look is neat. Great river fly; not so sure about the still waters.

I do not presume to lecture, but I found by experience that this type of emergers benefits from a gold or mirage rib. Not that there is anything wrong with your fly, and the photography is first class (as we have come to expect from you ).

Cheers!

J.

Aaaaah... but then we're doubling the tying time

I'm sure it wouldn't harm, Jindra, but the sheer simplicity is what grabbed me, and, as I mentioned, the tying time - making it no big deal if the CDC gets messed up and it's a 'one fish' pattern. Fine by me.
