Tying the CDC Hendrickson

Tying the CDC Hendrickson




The CDC Hendrickson is my favorite version of the Hendrickson patterns that I tie due to the fact that it fishes well over the majority of the hatch. Great footprint and floats well. This is the first, and quite often last pattern that I reach for.
