Beginning Fly Tying - 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.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
