I believe ants possess a flavor fish relish.

The black fur ant  always accompanies me on the stream.

I carry sizes 18 through 28.

Some are tied on dry fly hooks, some wet.


Tie two football shaped body segments dubbed with Angora rabbit spun fur separated by a dry or wet hackle.

When in doubt, fish an ant.
