A size 16 pattern imitating a wind blown or black flying ant. Two small teardrops of black epoxy form the body with a black cock hackle wound between them. This gives a very slim natural shape that trout will take with complete confidence. When flying ants are landing on the water, either cast the fly to rising fish or leave it floating in the general area of activity. The action when flying ants are about can be fast and furious, lasting just an hour or sometimes all day. The fly can be used on lakes and rivers from June to October.
