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.

Quick Tie Caddis
This high floating caddis is easy to tie and the fish love it. Ryan started tying this caddis fly pattern a couple of years ago after seeing something like it in Wyoming. Tie it with the body color to match the caddisflies on your stream. Tan is a good all around body color for most caddis in our are. Olive is another go-to body color for caddis fly patterns.
