CDC is short for cul de canard, which is literally French for duck's ass. In our tems, it refers to the feathers from that part of the duck's anatomy that are full of naturally water-resilient oils. These feathers are great for keeping dry flies afloat, and a little goes a long way.

Buyer beware...they can be expensive.
