Imagine your at your favorite water deep inside the forrest.
Of course you have your fly tying gear with you :smile:, but you are set for mosquito`s and too your big surprise the water is full of ants and the trout is going berserk.:smile:

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

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

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!
