CDC and biots with a small shower of tungsten beads and stripped quill

I have recently put my house on the market, time has been precious. As a result, and wanting to still be able to knock out a number of flies in readiness for next season, I opted to tie some simple, but no less effective CDC duns. I have used Nature's Spirit biots, the CDC is from Troutline. The flies tied with biots have a small amount of chopped grey squirrel just to cover up where the biots are tied off and to offer a little more suggestiveness in the pattern. I have tied the stripped quill versions without any dubbing; these for me will be used on ultra smooth flats.
