    The number of Elk Hair fibers from fly to fly (even within the same size) is very inconsistent. It makes flies of the same size appear as though they are a different size.

    Best in Northwest - 6/14/2014
    By: from Cheney, WA

    I have been buying and using Orvis trout flies for years now. The high quality and flotation capabilities of Orvis fly material make the Elk Hair Caddis one of my favorite, go to flies from summer to fall. On one of this in size 14 I had a fifty trout day on the Yakima. EHC is the best and most popular fly in the Pacific Northwest streams and only the Orvis tie is the best to use in the PNW.

    Ok, but... - 5/12/2014
    By: from Driftless Area

    Bought these EHK because I was too lazy to tie my own for season opener. Well tied, but there is a thin wire wrapped around the body (copper?) which seems kind of counter to what you'd want in a dry fly. Once it's wet and has lost its initial buoyancy the wire sends it down in a hurry. Anyone else noticed this?
