Petitjean CDC – The book


The long awaited book ‘Petitjean CDC’ that Marc and I have been working on for seven years, had its launch at the weekend at BFFI. As with everything else that Marc gets involved with, the book is beautifully designed and a joy to use.


Each step by step page is a wealth of information, with required materials and tools for each pattern, step by step instruction, tying difficulty level. Each pattern is photographed from four different angles, side, above, under and forward, giving you detailed information on each fly.


Each chapter is colour coded so you can finger your way quickly to each section. Included in the 500 fabulous pages you will find, CDC origins,  MP’s patterns, both original and modern, all in detailed step by step photographs, tools, techniques and how to use them and much more…


Amongst the 3000 + step by step images, we have made images with multiple exposures, these, when supported with a detailed text, make each step with movement easier to understand.



I will be publishing order information for the book, as soon as it is available.

  1. I was fortunate enough to buy one of the few copies available at the BFFI. A definitive guide to tying with CdC. I particularly liked that Marc had included a 1:1 scale picture of the hook style and sizes for each fly pattern. Makes it easy to match to whichever brand of hook you prefer or have access to.

  2. Any easier means of buying this Book?
    The website keeps asking me to do
    A bank transfer. I just want to pay by credit card or Paypal.
    Uk distributor???

  3. Thanks Barry. I tried ordering from Lanzarote and again from the UK. Every time it wants a bank wire. No credit / debit card option. I give up for now.

  4. This is an absolutely stunning book, superbly laid out. You can see why this took several years to compile, there’s enough patterns/info to keep the avid tier busy for a very long while. Despite its large A4 size and 500 pages you can turn to any page and it lays flat on the desk for you to reference as you tie.

    Fantastic work Marc & Barry.
