CDC Downey Nymph Fly Tying Video Instructions

cdc wonder nymph fly tyingThe CDC Downey Wonder Nymph is a variation of the classic Downey Wonder Nymph.  This version uses CDC for the legs and wing casing.  Instead of the aftershaft feather used on the standard wonder nymph.   CDC is available in many different colors, and is a bit easier to deal with than an aftershaft feather.  Either way, this fly makes a great emerger pattern for a variety of mayflies!!  Visit Herman’s 3D Fly Library – Fly Tying
