CDC Pheasant Tail Fly Tying Instructions

CDC Pheasant Tail Fly Tying InstructionsThe CDC Pheasant Tail is one of my favorite patterns!  The hint of flash and buggy profile make the CDC Pheasant Tail a great attractor fly pattern.  The CDC Pheasant Tail can be tied in natural, red or olive colors.  The CDC Pheasant Tail is traditionally tied a bit larger than a classic Pheasant Tail.  Size 10-16 are the most common sizes used in the CDC Pheasant Tail.
