Marc Petitjean is a world renowned fly-tier popular for his innovative CDC-patterns that have proven very successful countless times all over the globe. Tied with premium CDC feathers these Petitjean flies show excellent float-ability, incredibly realistic silhouettes and tantalizing movement of the fine fibers in the water surface – like almost no other CDC manages to mimic a live insect.
The MP48 is a great chironomid imitation for fishing lakes or slow flowing streams with muddy substrate. The tail and abdomen of the fly hang under water carried by the floatation of the CDC bubble-wing. This wire along the hook shank makes sure the fly sits in the surface correctly. A nice pattern for reservoir trout too.
