Matt Grobert shows how to tie a Puff Daddy Blue-Winged Olive in this week’s featured tying video.  “This is one of those times where it really pays to be picky about materials,” notes videographer Tim Flagler. “Matt starts with high quality natural dun CDC feathers and takes it a step further by culling a thin stemmed short feather from the herd. The thin stem will allow for more wraps around the hook shank and thus a fuller, more floaty CDC collar.”
