thread tan

wing CDC feather

notes: The trick with tying in a CDC wing is to clip out a part of the stem of the feather. You get a ‘forked’ feather. Tie in at the stem with 2 wraps and pull out the feather until you feel the stem slip out under the wraps. Wrap two more times and cut. Repeat this two or three times to get a nice wing.
