Secret Squirrel CDC Jig

Cheech - February, 2019

Picture this: a Squirrel and a Duck walk into a bar... Hit us in the comments if you have a good punchline for this joke, because I couldn't think of one. As you know, we like to pull out the ol' coffee grinder and play with some cool dubbing mixes. We mess with lots of dubbing combinations, but when we got CDC dubbing, the light bulb turned on and I started mixing it with different stuff. Of all the things I did, it worked best when I mixed it with squirrel (75% squirrel 25% CDC) and I played with lots of color combos that will have future applications. The cool thing about this dubbing blend is that the squirrel and CDC will move differently in the water giving it a fairly unique motion. On this fly, I matched it up with an awesome dark violet Hanak bead for the ultimate hot spot. Mix up a bunch of different colors and try it out!
