hey eastern pa. if your looking to tie a sulpher with CDC just tie in a cdc parachute instead of the Palmer hackle that most patterns use. check out the book tying small flies, and the site, also during a sulpher hatch, you will clean up with a CDC emerger with a CDC nymph. but if your all about drys then go with the first pattern, use a size 18 hook, 16 will probably be to large and will be rejected, also look at very old patterns, in the hub bub of trying to improve things, much has been forgotten.
