flyfisher117: That is a very popular pattern here in the Rockies, especially on the Green River, Colorado River and the Snake River. I like to use it like you would fish with a hopper/dropper combo.

The Chernobyl Ant is very effective. Like Larry, I use it in a dry/dropper rig. The one in the video is the original pattern. There are many variations of it. I prefer using the multi-color flies.

Uh yeah, they work. Bass will often attack them with reckless abandon.

I once even had one work too well. I was working at a fly shop at the time and myself and another guy were recruited to go out to a wealthy family's ranch and teach them and their friends how to fish and cast. We practiced casting in a field first and then headed to their pond. I was in the process of showing them how to lift line off the water and cast and in the process of getting the fly 25' out or so, a bass came up and killed a red chernobyl ant.

Here I was getting paid to teach them to catch fish, and I landed the first one!

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
