Tying the Elk Hair Caddis
Al Troth's Elk Hair Caddis is a classic. This pattern is a stand-by that should be in every fly-fisher's box. The basic pattern shown in this video features a tan color scheme. The Elk Hair Caddis can be tied in several colors to match the caddis hatching, but the tan is a good all around fly.
Tie in sizes 12-20. Tie with tan, black, or olive bodies. Experiment with Ice dubbing for the body to add flash to the fly.
