Tying an Elk Hair Caddis

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

Tim Flagler ties one of the most popular caddis patterns of all time. The fly was authored by Al Troth to imitate fluttering or spent adult caddis, and here Flagler ties it on a size 16 dry fly hook, demonstrating its simplicity and durability as an attractor pattern.

    One of my all time favorite flies. I keep my box full of them, in Cream Tan, Olive Orange and Black. from size 14 down to 20. They are effective were ever there is trout or grayling and caddis flies.
