Featured Fly CDC Trico Dun

The CDC Trico Dun is a very effective pattern to fish during a trico hatch. When the trout are keyed in on the spinners many times if you put a dun over them they will go out of there way to eat it. One reason why I enjoy fishing the dun is that it is very visible even in sizes as small as 28. The dun can be fished throughout the entire Trico hatch, you will be amazed at how well you can see it as well as how much fish enjoy it!


Hook: TMC 100 sz. 22-28
Thread: UNI Thread 8/0 Tan or Olive 
Tails: Mayfly Tails Dun
Abdomen: ECD Trico Abdomen or Light Olive Antron dubbing 
Thorax: ECD Trico Thorax or Hares Ear Dubbing 
Wing: Super Select CDC White or Lt. Dun

Step 1: Start the thread behind the hook eye. Tie in 2 Mayfly Tail Fibers. Split them by bringing it between the fibers.

Step 2: Dub the Abdomen 3/4 up the hook shank

Step 3: Tie in CDC using the tip method (stack 2 or 3 smaller feathers)

Step 4:  Trim the extra CDC create a thread dam in the front of the CDC.

Step 5: Dub the Thorax pushing the CDC straight up and down.

A few finished and ready to fish.
