acronym for "Cul de Canard" which literally translates to "butt of the duck". Used both to refer to the feathers from the area around the oil gland of a duck and also to the flies tied with these feathers. The feathers from this area are very wispy and impregnated with natural oils making them extremely waterproof.
Stands for the French words that mean “butt of the duck.” CDC feathers come from the rear end of the duck where the highly buoyant preen oil is discharged from a gland. In recent years fly tiers have found many creative uses for these feathers. CDC feathers are remarkably buoyant by themselves and should only be treated with a powdered form of floatant.
