Ed's thread about favorite feathers reminded me of a question I like to ask tiers.

If you could use only one material besides thread, for all your fly tying, for trout, warm water fish, salt water...all your fishing , what would that material be? why?
Like already mentioned definitely CDC.
You can create a lot of patterns in a lot of colours and fish likes them also Ted.

It's kind of hard to tie anything without thread, so if thread counts as the material, then thread it is. Discounting thread, it would be partridge.

If I were stranded on an island with a bottle (or two, or three) of whiskey, a mermaid, some hooks and thread and only one material -- it would be "deer hair" for sure. :D
