I save mine and keep them on a little pile in my tying area. Then I clean up my tying area and ask myself, why the heck am I keeping this, and throw it away.

You left out the step where you sneeze and the bits fly all over the room.

Great look flys Beeber. I tried these a couple of years ago with some success. They don't work for me as well as loopwing CDC emergers, but they are a heck of a lot easier to tie.

I used them this past summer in a black and peacock version and did fairly well with them.

Or cough or just breath.

CDC can be chopped and spun - and you don't need one of those expensive marc petitjean tools, a clear binder clip from staples and a foam block with a slit in it.

i've done it with just a little waxed thread and some care.

it makes great buggy bodies on small flies - scuds, sow bugs, walts worms etc.
