The Elk Hair Caddis is a staple in your trout fly box. Imitating a hatching caddis fly, it can be tied in sizes 10-20 and in just about any color combination of dubbing, hackle, and wing. They may be thought of for trout, but you can also find uses for them to target smallmouth bass and panfish.
We're working on getting instructions to tie this fly.
