    I tied a batch of Elk Wing Caddis using this new-to-me from Orvis. Nice to work with and it makes my fly's look like a pro did them.

    Yearling elk hair has become my favorite material for mayfly tails. Makes the fly ride high and absorbs floatant well.

    not dun - 4/12/2013

    color is dark brown with no hint of grey. Either it was mislabeled or was not bleached well.

    The dark Brown piece I recived has a resonably aggressive sheen to the dye; I am interested to see how it looks on the finished fly. These are nice enough pieces of material though they are small. I would hazard about 2"x1 1/2". The material will certainly tie up into a fair number of flys; but I would not call the ammount generous.

    This is a great item to have in your fly kit. It is really easy to use and the pack comes with a tun of it. Great color to use for fall/ winter fishing. I would like to get some more soon!
