MayFly tyed with CDC

The fly is identical with this one tied with standard hackle:

The difference between these two flies  is that I use the fly tied with CDC on very clear and shallow waters.

The step by step is the same for both flies. The  difference is in the hackle: for one I use chocolate dun hackle and for the other I use tan CDC feather:
