How to Tie a Caribou Caddis

Producer: Tim Flagler

Matt Grobert demonstrates how to tie a Caribou Caddis on a Dai-Riki #305 size 14 hook. As tier and videographer Tim Flagler notes, “Caribou hair takes some getting used to, but it’s a terrific tying material and adds both form and function to this pattern.” Durable, and yet softer than deer hair, caribou hair floats like a cork and comes in a variety of shades, from cream to brown to dun.
