    They are designed with a spun deer hair head which floats them yet they are designed to represent a underwater bait fish. Why Isn't weighting expected?

    wing hair choice

    Why Is Elk Hair so commonly used for Caddis Wings as opposed to some short Texas Deer hair ?
    The colors can be matched , must it have to do with the texture or the floatation ?

    Eagle Claw hooks

    I've recently tried Eagle Claw fly hooks and am pleasantly surprised.
    To me they are perfectly acceptable, made in the U.S.A. and much less expensive.
