Black Angora Rabbit
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.
