Great Flies

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used Umpqua dry flies quite a bit and they always work great. They are high quality and allow you to keep hooking fish with the same fly over and over again, they don't just fall apart after one or two fish. They also stay on top of the water like a dry fly should.

Elk Hair Caddis - such a great name.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These well-made flies look great in my fly box. Soon they'll look great in a trout's mouth.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This should be a staple in any anglers box in the west (never fished east coast, so maybe there too). I used this fly in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, and it has proven itself time and time again. Buy it in 16/18/20/22 and you'll be set once the hatch goes off.

Simply amazing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is by far my favorite fly to throw on. in my opinion, the tan works better than the brown. Its definitely a brown trout magnet.

Good fly

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This fly has been very effective during the evening caddis hatch. The lighter colors have been working well during the summer months and there a necessity for any serious trout fisherman.

A timeless classic

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The elk hair caddis fly is something every fisherman should carry in their arsenal. A few different sizes and colors in this fly is just what you need on those hot summer days to fool the most educated trout!

High mountain lake necessity

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If I had to choose one fly to fish high mountain lakes, it would be the Elk Hair Caddis. I hook up more fish in the high lakes on Elk Hair Caddis patterns than any other fly. I would choose the tan if I could only have one color. For size I would have to go with the #14. But since I don't have to choose I carry an assortment of tan in #12 to 16, and Black in #16 and 18, in the high lakes of central Washington State where I live. I have seen fish get real selective in some of these high lakes when the little #16 and 18 black caddis are laying eggs. A nice feature about this pattern is that the elk hair helps the fly float a little longer, especially with some floatant, although I have good luck with fish hitting a wetted out submerged fly a foot or two inder the surface. Perhaps an Elk Hair Caddis is a good attractor pattern. Perhaps caddis just taste good, or are loaded with protein, and fish cannot help themselves. Whatever reason, they work. Umpqua also ties a quality fly that will not explode or unravel after you've released your first two fish.

Well, I haven't tasted them, but the fish think they're tasty

Umpqua Elk Hair Caddis

  • Gender: Male

Love to throw this fly on right as the sun sets on the middle provo river, just as the water starts to boil. Tan and brown tend to work best for me, but obviously that's subjective to your area and time of year. Definitely a go-to year after year.

It works

this is the first fly I've ever owned. It was my go to for about a week until I increased my collection. I caught a few fish on it and have gone back to it a few times. Overall a great fly. make sure to apply some floatant to keep it going for longer.
