CDC Midge Emerger

The CDC Midge Emerger is a dynamite small pattern originated by Shane Stalcup. Tied by Hans Stephenson of Dakota Angler & Outfitter in Rapid City, South Dakota. The CDC soft hackle give the fly movement and traps air bubbles that mimic an emerging midge pupa. Fish this pattern deep behind a copper john. It can also be fished below the surface behind a dry fly such as a parachute adams.

CDC Mayfly Dun

The CDC Mayfly Dun is an awesome all purpose mayfly dun imitation. This pattern is an easy and quick fly to tie but very effective. I use the CDC Mayfly Dun to imitate baetis, PMDs, and PEDs. It can be adapted to suit any small to medium sized mayfly. Dry with amadou and finish drying with frog’s fanny, top ride, or another desiccant.
