Twisted hackle
By Agostino Roncallo

In previous articles Palomino and Midge, I showed how to create an extended body twisting on itself CDC beards. Being satisfied with the result, I tried to create even larger bodies, but the length of the barbs did not allow it and then, instead of beards, twisted on itself an entire hackle CDC. With that kind of body extended, I built imitations of any kind that I proposed in my book about CDC "Magie in CDC."


1) Hold the hackle CDC for the base and the tip, the twist on itself.


2) Twisted Hackle


3) The body extended.


4) Fixed the body extended on a hook grub.


5) Cut the excess


6) Fixed a hackle CDC beside the extended body.


7) I wrap the hackle around the hook.


8) Fixed the hackle near the hook eye and cut the excess.


9) Port forward all beards and fixed next to the hook eye.


10) I lift beards and fixed vertically by running the head of the fly.


11) I take the fly from the vise and shorten the beards of the wings.


12) The fly is build.

Twisted hackle
Di Agostino Roncallo

Nei precedenti articoli Palomino e Midge, mostrai come creo un corpo extended torcendo su loro stesse barbe di CDC. Essendo soddisfatto del risultato, provai a creare corpi ancora pių grandi, ma la lunghezza delle barbe non lo permetteva e allora , invece delle barbe, ritorsi una intera hackle di CDC. Con quel tipo di corpo extended, ho costruito imitazioni di ogni tipo che ho proposto nel mio libro sul CDC “Magie in CDC”.



1) Tenendo una hackle di CDC per la base e la punta, la ritorco su se stessa.


2) Hackle ritorta


3) Il corpo extended.


4) Fisso il corpo extended su un amo grub.


5) Recido l’eccedenza.


6) Fisso una hackle di CDC accanto al corpo extended.


7) Avvolgo la hackle intorno all’amo.


8) Fisso la hackle accanto all’occhio dell’amo e taglio l’eccedenza.


9) Porto tutte le barbe in avanti e le fisso accanto all’occhi dell’amo.


10) Sollevo le barbe e le fisso in verticale eseguendo la testa della mosca.


11) Tolgo la mosca dal morsetto e accorcio le barbe delle ali.


12) La mosca č finita.
