Default A really easy tied ant........

imagine your at your favoritt water deep inside the forrest.
Offcourse you have your flytying gear with you , but you are set for mosquito`s and too your big surprise the water is full of ants and the trout is going berserk.

Oh no, you don`t have any foam or any suitable dubbing for ants.....you only have a piece of polychenille and hackle........well not too wory you are saved

This is what you do, and it only take a few minutes if not a few seconds

Thank`s a lot to Staffan LindstrÝm for teaching me this pattern.

Remember that the back knot is moving, making this ant lively on the water

Terje!
