Elk hair caddis ?

I decided to tie some elk hair caddis last night and wasn't satisfied with the results. What qualities should the hair used posses? I used a fairly long deer body and while it marginally flared on the #12's (on left) it looks like crap on the #18's. Aside from a shorter hair what other qualities should I search for.?
