CDC Caddis Emerger

$2.50

The CDC Caddis Emerger is a variation of Al Troth’s original Elk Hair Caddis.  The substitution of CDC for Elk hair creates a very buggy appearance that still floats very well in the film.  Not only does the dual-color CDC wing help the fly float, but it also acts as a sighter and helps the fly dry easily.  The squirrel dubbing mixed with CDC creates a buggy profile that imitates both the body and the legs of the caddis.  Not only is the pattern a great option for a caddis imitation, but it also doubles up as a great searching pattern in between other mayfly hatches.  This caddis pattern is a worthy addition to any dry fly box out there!

Fishing strategies:

The CDC Caddis emerger fishes best throughout the summer months.  We typically dead-drift this pattern using a 9-foot leader terminating in 5X.  It may be fished as a single dry fly or as an indicator in a dry-dropper rig.  This pattern is an excellent choice during the famed Mother’s day Caddis hatch.  It has high floatation, durability, and visibility.
