The Flying Ant in black is hands down one of the best flies for imitating a variety of ants. From those that fly to those that walk around on logs. This imitation covers them all and the addition of wings helps it to float and provide a realistic presentation. The goal of this fishing fly is to imitate a spent ant or one that is trying to escape the water. Casting these across the river and incorporating a few twitches to make it look life-like is a good strategy. Like always, remember to create a dead drift by either keeping your rod tip high to reduce slack line or mending into slower-moving water. An important fly to have for fly fishing in the summer.
