The Story

A nice combination of elk hair and CDC in a caddis imitation great for skating. CDC keeps it from absorbing water. Trout fishing caddis fly in natural.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Spring Fly I’ve used these for years in spring ponds and small streams as my “go to” for rising trout when the caddis are around. Nice and buggy riding low in the surface film. Irresistible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden trout like this Just returned from fishing the high altitude lakes of Wyoming. On the 1st cast with this caddis, I got a hit from a golden trout. Over a 1 hour time, I had six goldens landed. But after the 5th one, all the front hair on the caddis was gone from the sharp teeth of those fish. It was almost time to leave and I didn't want to spend time tying on something else, so I still cast it... but it looked like a bald worm at this point. The 6th one took it anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great caddis There is something about this caddis fly that makes it more effective than regular Elk Wing caddis. Not sure is way it floats or the cdc movement. Wish they would come in smaller sizes #18 and #20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite caddis When other caddis flies don't produce tie one of these on. Floats perfectly and looks much more realistic than a normal elk hair. Fools them every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CDC caddis This fly does a nice job of staying on top of the water and is easier to see than other caddis flys. I get a lot of action with this fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I fish approximately 100 days per year. A CDC and elk or CDC and deer is on the end of my line about 1/3 of the time. Its my number one searching dry fly. Orvis' prices on flies can't be beat in terms of the quality of the tying. Even though I normally tie my own flies, I still use Orvis to top up my boxes before a big trip, or to try out some new patterns.
