Cul De Canard (cul-de-canard, CDC) (French for "Duck bottom") are the feathers from the back of a duck. They owe their buoyancy to their proximity to the ducks preen gland which secretes an oil distributed by the duck as a cleaning and waterproofing measure.
With Swiss CDC you can make the finest flies, which float very well and will convince even the smartest fish.
Their natural fat content also makes them highly buoyant but would get lost during a dyeing process. Therefore Swissflies ties the unique Swiss CDC Flies wherever possible with undyed high quality Swiss CDC feathers.
Swissflies offers you a great choice of finest Swiss CDC feathers selected by hand by SWISSCDC to moderate prices.
