Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be used in a number of new flies I want t I haven't used this much yet but seems to be used in alot of flies I want to tie. It's a bit pricey but you don't use alot of material per fly so should be a good value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't waste your money! The number of feathers and size are laughable. This is the worst fly tying material purchase I have ever made.Its a ripoff. No wonder Orvis does not sell the large boxes of CDC it used to offer. I purchased 3 bags and boy was I disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Laughable Quantity I had a gift card so I decided to grab some materials, some of which was some CDC. When I opened up the box...I actually laughed out loud. Most definitely not 24 feathers. Ordered a few colors and one had 10, the others had 6. Some of the other materials I ordered seemed to suffer from the same issues. Seems like a QC issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CDC feathers I have used these before, for tying my favourite dry flies. Excellent quality and right size for tying F flies, Shuttlecocks, Plume tips, Olives, also good for adding interest and movement to grayling nymphs. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect At first glance in this bag I felt there were not many feathers in it. But after taking them out and separating the pieces I was pleased with the number of feathers and they were in perfect condition and a excellent quality. Will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I needed some blue dun C-D-C feathers to go with my natural C-D-C feathers, which I had previously purchased elsewhere. The quality of the Orvis blue dun C-D-C feathers were far superior.
