Fly Tying: McPhail CDC Mayfly

Fly tying tutorials and patterns from

The McPhail CDC Mayfly.

If you haven’t checked out the fly tying skills of Davie McPhail, I highly recommend that you do. Davie is awesome at tying flies and his YouTube channel has just under 45,000 subscribers.

One of his most recent ties is the McPhail CDC Mayfly. A simple dry fly pattern with some style is the best way to describe it. CDC is one of the most useful materials in fly tying and it’s damn near unbeatable when used for wings.

Davie posts several new videos weekly so be sure to give him a follow on YouTube.
