No 9. CDC Hatcher

CDC Hatcher

A fairly simple fly to tie the that often are cruelly effective when fish is crusingt and eating various insects in the surface. The fly can be varied in many color combinations and in various materials.
This particular variant is suited to fishing for hatching midges but by example tying in a couple of tails and tie a tapperad dubbed body with ribs we can imitate different hatching mayflies and excluded the tail we have a hatching caddispupa.
A basic pattern, in other words which is very adaptable to different fishing situations

CDC feathers have an incredibly good buoyancy and keeps much "air" both by the fine structure and its natural lubrication. 
 I prefer natural colored CDC feathers as they often have retained its natural lubrication. Colored CDC feathers have no natural fat when they are degreased so they can be dyed.

Materials List
Hook: Kamasan B100 Size 10-16 or similar hook. The important thing is that it's a curved hook  and with rather thin hook goods.
Thread: Black
Rib: A straw pearl flashabou
Body: Thin black flossilke or black binding wire.
Body Paint: Thin UV glue
Thorax: Peacook hearl
Wing bag: two pieces. gray or white cdc feathers. 

 1. Attach the flossilket or thread. Thread is prefered to the really small versions of this fly.

2. Tie in a straw flashabou and wrap flosset down to the bend. 
Cut away flashaboun sticking out the front of the hook shank / hook eye.

3. Wrap flossilket back and forth over the hook shank a few times so it forms a gently tapperad body. The body must cover about 2/3 of the hook shank.

4. Wrap flashaboun 6-7 laps forward over the body as a ribbing.

5. Apply a drop of thin UV varnish. 
I prefer Solarez UV products. It hardens incredibly well and is 100% non-stick

6. Distribute the UV varnish with a needle so it covers the hole body

7. Cure the UV varnisch a few seconds with a UV lamp.

8. Now take a CDC feather and attach it loosely in the spring tip of the hook over the side of the body beginning. The CDC feather must be attached so that the concave side, inwardly curved side facing up. The feather should be fastened so that it is located in a 30-degree angle out from the hook. 
Easily seen in the image nr10.

9. Pull back the cdc Feather slighty so it get the prefered angel and so that the tip does not protrude above the hook. Attach the feather a little harder with a pair of tighter turns with the thread.

10. Repete the procedure with the next feather. Here you see how the feathers are angled out from the hook.

11-12. Tie in 3-4 peacook hearl on top, in between the CDC feathers


13. Wind the peacock hearl forward towards the hook eye

14. Attach the hearl a few millimeters before the hook eye and cut off the remaining parts

15. We have now reached the stage where we should continue with the CDC feathers and now it is important that one has left little space between peacook hearl and the hook eye. Otherwise it will be too tight and there is a risk that you will cover parts of the hook eye when the fly is finished.

16. Take one of the cdc feathers and fold it over the chest so a small loop, bubble,  is formed. 
Secure with a couple of loose thread turns.

17. Adjust the feather loop by pulling the feather, for example with a hackle pliers while holding back the thread so it does not slide over the hook eye. The loop, the bubble, must should encapsulate the chest. This bubble has an amazing ability to trap air that contributes to the fly's buoyancy. Cut off the excess part of the cdc feather and attach it with a pair of tighter turns of thread.

 18. Repeat with the other feather.

19. From below you can see how the chest has been coverdt with the cdc feathers.

20. Cut away the rest of the second cdc feather also.

21. Finish with a small head. Attach and cut the thread. Varnish the head and the fly is finished

22. As i said, you can tye this type of flies in many varieties, but my favorites are this type, with either natural gray or white wing.
