Pheasant Tail Midge Pupa – Hans Stephenson

A nice little emerger to fish in the film. Hans mentions that he “greases” the CDC, so it would be alright to sub in some other materials for the post that is a bit more durable. Adding floatant to CDC will push down the air trapping barbules on the feather that help male it a natural floater. If you do use CDC, it should float nicely in the film without the floatant.
