CDC feathers grow near a duck's preen gland. Naturally waterproof and buoyant, they are incredibly lifelike on the water. Do NOT use waterproofing products like Gink's with this as it will ruin the natural waterproofing properties.
A CDC collar on a nymph creates a beautifully flowing veil of fibers that are far livelier and more buggy-looking than any partridge or hen feather could ever hope to be. These fibers do a good job of imitating either dangling legs or emerging wings, and in some cases the bedraggled wings of a drowned adult insect. Or just use it on traditional dry flies and nymphs, either way, CDC is a winner.
Very generous bag with great coloring.
NOTE; As with all natural hand-dyed products, colors may vary from lot to lot.
