CDC Shuttlecock Hare's Ear


This pattern is tied on a size 12 curved hook and imitates an emerging buzzer or indeed any insect at the water surface, that is about to hatch. The body is Hare's ear under fur with some guard hairs and ribbed with fine gold wire. CDC is tied in behind the thorax and pulled up over the eye in a shuttlecock style, allowing the fly to hang vertically in the surface film. In lakes the fly should be fished almost stationary, retrieving only to keep in contact with the fly. On rivers it should be fished “dead drift” down a run, line retrieve being dependent on currant speed. This fly can be used all year round.
