CDL Streamer

The CDL Streamer is a pattern designed for saltwater application that features use of Whiting Coq-de-Leon rooster hackles as its primary material. The pattern also follows the general design, type of materials and tying methods of the "Wacissa" that was the original pattern I designed for application of Coq-de-Leon as featured material in a streamer I've fished with considerable success for species of black bass. The Coq-de-Leon body of this fly looks just as good in the water as a bait fish imitation as does the Wacissa, but variations of the pattern can be tied in different sizes with American Rooster Hackles in selected colors for the body and matching colors of Spey Hackle for throat and American Hen Saddle for the soft-hackle. Materials for the pattern are as follows:

  • Hook: Daiichi X472 or 2461, size 1/0 or Smaller
  • Thread: Danville's 6/0 Fly Master, Black
  • Wing: Two Matching Whiting Coq-de-Leon Rooster Hackles, 2X Length of Hook Shank
  • Body: Pearl Mylar Medium, Double Wrapped from Front and Return
  • Ribbing: Gold Wire, Counter Wrapped
  • Throat: Whiting Spey Hackles, Salmon, Five Hackles with Tips Matching to Hook Bend
  • Hackle: Two Blue-eared Pheasant Body Feathers, Wrapped Individually as Soft-hackles
  • Head: Black Thread, Build Head and Finished With "Hard as Nails" for Gloss
