Like deer but more durable, ELK BODY HAIR is a staple in fly tying. The coarse, thick hair is great for spinning clipped hair heads on flies such as sculpins, irresistible and muddler minnows while patterns such as the elk hair caddis, x- caddis and stimulators would be lost without it. ELK BODY HAIR can be used in place of deer in various recipes and patterns.
