If the standard Elk Hair Caddis is my go to fly, this is next in line. While some of EZEYEFLY’s large eyes are painted to make tying the fly to the tippet even easier, this one does that plus some. We think the painted eye is an extension of the fly itself--making the eye the head of the caddis. If you have a trout refuse a typical caddis, have one of these painted-eye flies ready. Most trout have never seen one of these before and will be more likely to make that rise!
At EZEYEFLY, we support sustainable and cruelty-free-as-can-be fishing. That's why all our flies come barbless, so that the hook goes in and comes out for catch-and-release fishing.
EZEYEFLY easy-tie flies were developed by Randy, our resident expert, with both a Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Fisheries Biology. Previously working as a Fisheries Management Biologist in Kansas, and now serving in the EPA.
What makes EZEYEFLY flies so special is the drastically increased size in the eye. We've beefed it up without drastically increasing on fly weight, and no noticeable difference on the take. Spend less time rigging and more time fishing.
