The Story

From high mountain lakes to crowded local streams, fish dine on ants and other terrestrials as they fall into the water. With the Flying Ant pattern, turn that feeding instinct against them and catch fish when no else can. "Hey, what are you using?" will be a common question you'll hear as you pull fish after fish out of the black, cinnamon.

Sizes: 14, 16, 18, 20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully tied flies! The flying ant in brown worked wonders on the seen it all cutthroats of Yellowstone! Picked up a lot of fish that passed on all the hopper and nymph rigs other guys threw at them. Easily visible and floated perfectly with a little gink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and deadly I caught my first native brookie in SMNP on an 18 black winged ant in a stream about 4 foot wide. Ideal pattern. Tough wings. The fly lasted all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Automatic I just started fly fishing this year, and was told to try a flying ant pattern. So I purchased this fly from Orvis in a black pattern and was not disappointed. The fly is automatic, the trout cannot layoff it.
