Schweizer Fliegen – Mouches Suisses – Swiss Flies

Swiss historic high quality cul-de-canard CDC feathers- Jura CDC

The miracle feather, also called CDC feathers, croupions de canard, cul-de-canard or ailes grasses/ barbes grasses (the first names given by Charles Bickel, inventor of the CDC fly in 1924).

You need first quality CDC to make these wonderful fine flies, which catch fish where other flies have no chance, especially in these chalk streams, where the big trout have enough food and have time to inspect in detail the flies they take.

Here you find the original feathers from the Jura mountains- the same feathers as those used by the inventors of the CDC fly- nearly one hundred years ago. Same source, same quality. That's the quality you need to remake the famous flies of Bickel, Ioset, Veya, Bresson or other artists in flytying- or to make your own sucessful patterns.

When giving this unique CDC feather in my hands, Mister Fontannaz, last proprietor of the famous fly tying atelier "Mouches de Vallorbe" told me: "These cul-de-canard feathers have always been as expensive as gold, but the value of this material on a fly cannot be paid by money"

Leon Links (author of Tying flies with CDC- The miracle feather) wrote about that CDC: "I prefer these CDC's over all CDC material I was able to buy. The Croupions are perfect for small hackled flies and also for F Fly like patterns. The croupions stems are thin and the feathers have an extremely dense structure which produces perfectly floating flies."
