The Super Floating Sedge is a fly that I love to use in big rivers or big lakes for large trout and grayling. This fly is easy and funny tot tie and I recommend it for any beginner fly tyier in using CDC for making bodies or wing for his flies.
Hooks: Demmon DSD 100BL for very big and strong fish or Maruto D04 BL for small and medium fish.
Thread: 17/0 Uni or 8/0 Uni is great. For me 17/0 is one of the best thread that I use and I like it very much because is very thin and easy to work with
Body: Top Grade CDC in light grey brown or Khaki Campbell CDC
Wing :Wing CDC in grey dun or Khaki Campbell CDC
I prefer to use “Wing CDC” instead of other type of CDC due the high density of the barbs.
This fly is very easy to tie and very effective in Winter time for grayling. In UK rivers this nymph is deadly and tied on very small hooks can be used for French style of nymphing. If you tie this fly on large and medium hooks you can use it forCzech nymphing
Hooks: Demmon DGS 900BL or Demmon DGH 900BL #14
