CDC Humpy fly

CDC Humpy fly

A CDC variant for the classic fat boy dry fly Humpy.

Here we replace the traditional deer hair hump and wing with a couple of CDC hackles.

If you find the original pattern with deer hair challenging, this is a great pattern to practice on, same technique, different material.
