Flying Ant

Ants are a common terrestrial food source for trout during the warmer parts of the season. This ant pattern sits low in the water, just like the natural and remains buoyant with a CDC wing and grizzled hackle. When fish key into flying ants you need a few of these small imitations to give yourself the best chance at catching these fickle fish.
