    It looks like a fur ant pattern. Pretty standard.

    Cinnamon flying ant was my first thought. That fly is either mangled or a cheap tie or both. Next time shoot a horizontal perspective to show the relation between the body and the hook.

    I agree, it's a winged ant pattern. Probably poly wings.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    Holding that bug over a plume of steam for a few seconds might help it out and make it fishable, again...

    Cinnamon flying ant pattern. Hackle and yellow poly wing are the give away.
    Very common fly...made in cinnamon and black by Montana Fly.

    Looks like that winged ant got squished. Must have fooled someone.
    Nice fish! Do you have anymore pictures of it lying in the dirt?
    As publicity increases so does the propensity of tripping over yards of mono attached to a Dipsey sinker.

    Yep. The hook looks bent as well.

    I was online when this post came up fresh, I looked at the image and thought ant like everyone else but I also had a second thought. Who names something that looks like that?

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
