Substitute white CDC for the grey cdc and it is a lot easier to see and works just as well. To save some time just tie in a single strand of krystal flash instead of going to the trouble of melting them together. Hareline dubbin also makes some sweet trailing shucks designed by shane stalcup you can just tie right in.
