Alain’s mix of CDC techniques

Posted on 6 January 2014 by Vincent

A couple of weeks ago we met Alain Barthélemy at Exclusive Fly Fishing. Alain, owner of the company AB Fly, was kind enough to tie some flies for us.

The first fly Alain ties for us is a little mayfly. But the main reason for him to start off with this fly, is to demonstrate some techniques he uses with CDC feathers. You can change the colors in this fly to suit the species of mayfly that are present in your rivers.

    What a nice fly, looked easy on video but proved to be more challenging, especially getting the body to lay out properly.
