hair for small flies
For small caddis, dik-dik works really well but is difficult to locate. A good sub is some hair commonly marketed as comparadun hair. It is, I believe, a very fine deer hair and is available in a few colors.
Posted image is a Miracle Caddis; very similar to the X-Caddis but with a dubbed head. If you desire something that rides low, catches a lot of fish and is very durable, this one should work for you.

For my tying marathon I sub EZ-Dub for the body for the sake of speed.
