CDC's superb natural buoyancy allows these trout fishing flies to float beautifully without the need of artificial floatants. It is fabulously softly wispy and subtle; an ideal tying material that is delicate and insect like.
Cul de canard translates from French as 'Duck Bottom', and rightly so as these are feathers from the back of a duck around the preen gland; a gland which produces a buoyant preen oil, giving an extra lift to any fishing fly which uses CDC feathers.
