CDC Frenchie

Cheech - December 10, 2019

Full disclosure, Lance is currently competing in the world championships as I write this, so he had no say over how I tied this fly!! yes..... Honestly, all of you know the frenchie, and hopefully you all have fished it to see how crazy effective it is. Honestly, I had just gotten the new Swiss CDC Multi-Clamp, so one of the first things I did was tie some Frenchies with CDC collars... I'm really digging how the tool works and how the fly turned out. Check out the tying video.
