    I enjoy tying with CDC and I've recently came across this fly tied by Korrie Broos from SA. I thought I'd pass it along. I tie something similar but I'll try this one out as well.

    Yeah, over the years the Brits planted trout throughout their former empire, wherever conditions suited. There are brown trout in the Vale of Kashmir and many of the mountain streams of, for instance, the Whitwatersrand and other mountain ranges of South Africa have been planted and in some places populations of trout have even become naturalized.

    Many x-factors lately but this is the first I see tying the fly.
    Looks good and will give it a try this season.
