Not Dry Fly Hackle
Reviewer: A viewer from Central NY
Package includes five 4" strips of hackle. I bought it out of curiosity hoping to use it for dry flies. I tied my first fly with it and dunked it in a glass of water where it almost immediately became waterlogged and sank to the bottom of the glass. No natural waterproofing left on this CDC. Looks like it would make a decent wet fly hackle, but it's useless if you want it to float.
Not as bad at the other guy, but...

I bought a few packages of this stuff to try on dry flies as well. Mine didn't sink right off, but it didn't float as well as regular hackle. It also looks sort-of wonky on parachute flies. I wouldn't buy this with the expectation of never using regular hackle again.
