Some of the most exciting fly fishing moments I have had have been during a strong caddis hatch. When these bugs are on the move the fish know it and want their fair share. The Elk Hair Caddis is one of the best if not the best imitation out there. Time and time again it’s one of the most productive dry flies in my box. I have, however had experienced refusals when fishing a more traditional Elk Hair. Step in the Pearl Body Elk Hair Caddis. This fly has all the traditional components that make it great, while adding in a little “pop”. The flash body helps to set it apart from the crowd and can trigger explosive strikes. If you enjoy fishing the good old Elk Hair, try mixing it up with a flash body and you won’t be disappointed.
