Product Details

Elk Hair Caddis Olive - Dry Fly

The Elk Hair Caddis Olive is based on the Elk Hair Caddis Tan created by Al Troth.

Elk Hair Caddis Olive

The Elk Hair Caddis Olive developed by Al Trout was originally used in the American Northwest with a great deal of success and is now used world-wide. This is a superb imitation of an adult caddis fly which rather than imitate a particular species of caddis uses a roof wing profile to mimic a whole range of medium to small brown caddis flies. The wing is made of Elk hair which is tough but retains good buoyancy.
