    A simple great fly. Works great for me in North Carolina! Great value and holds up well

  2. Elk Hair Caddis

    Posted by Ryan Dreiling on 15th Jul 2021

    Great classic fly! Quality hook and materials that withstand multiple hook ups! Have had good success with this one!

  3. Good quality

    The flies are made very well. Some of the best quality I’ve seen. Fished this fly on a few lakes. Caught a few rainbows and the fly held up. Hook never bent and the fly stayed intact. I would buy again.

    Very well done fly. Have already used a couple of them successfully. Ascent makes very good flies.
