How to tie the CDC Green McKenzie Caddis

The Green McKenzie Caddis should be hatching in the next week or so. This large green caddis adult tends to flop around on the surface and the CDC hackle on this imitation kicks off a lot of action and the fish love it. You want to get the CDC fibers splaying off the stem — the more CDC the better. You gotta see how this looks underwater — this post on McKenzie Green Caddis on WestFly has a great shot.
