CDC Puff parachute

Hook: TMC 2488 #16
Thread: Semperfli Nano silk 12/0
Tail: Swiss CDC Dark Dun
Body: Beaver underfur dubbing
Wing post: CDC White
Hackle: Whiting Hebert Bronze Saddle

I saw the usage of a CDC puff as tail somewhere, don’t know where, but I have had some puffs that I’ve wanted to put to use for a while. The TMC hook got that good curve and will sit nicely in the surface, even though it is too long until season starts again around here to test that out anytime soon….
