The Elk Hair Caddis is tied in several different body and hackle color combinations. Our project fly is olive body and brown hackle. Popular combinations are: tan body and ginger hackle, black body and brown hackle, orange body and grizzly hackle, yellow and creme, chartreuse and light dun, just to name a few. One of my favorite is gray body, grizzly hackle and deer hair wings. All catch fish.
