In today’s fly tying video I show you how to tie an elk hair caddis, one of the most classic and most effective dry flies of all time.

I use cream color dubbing but you can use any color that matches the hatch you’ll be fishing.  The elk hair floats high and dry and so should you (or whatever that means).
