The Story

The elk wing caddis dry fly is one of the most popular and proven dry flies in the world. The dry fly pattern imitates the natural caddis, one of the most prolific insects across North America that trout feed on. The elk hair caddis can fish like conventional dry flies, as well as be "skated" across the top of the water to attract feeding trout.

Sizes: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer time favorite This fly is a must for West Virginia waters in summertime and early fall. I’ve caught plenty off one fly, so this fly is very well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent detail Solid caddis that holds together well. Have been using it on PNW fall trout and getting some consistent hits!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made. I am a beginner fly fisherman. I like Orvis because the products are reasonably priced and easy to find online. I would make one recommendation as to mark the container with the flys with size and name. For advanced people, this may not be necessary. However for myself it will reinforce the name and size of the fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a go to fly here in the high country The caddis in a size 18-20 is a great choice for this area. I grew up fishing these streams and fly fish them almost every day that I am off work. I would also pick up Tan, and cinnamon caddis. On tight small streams use a 5x tippet with a 6x fluorocarbon 20 to 22 bead head dropper and watch the magic happen. I fish stocked and native waters and catch mostly wild trout when fishing this system even when on stocked waters.
