I had some #24 straight hooks donated to me. I wasn't sure of what to use for a post; figured CDC would not add a lot of bulk to the shank and would flair at the top of the post, thus holding the hackle in place. The flies I have tied have come out ok.
Has anyone else used cdc as a post material and what ahve been your experience if so? Does it get so slimed after a fish that Frogs Fanny won't work it out? Would anyone like to test drive some on stubborn SoHo fish?
