The Story

This is a terrific ant fly pattern that is not only realistic but, due to the construction of the fly, very durable. Sits low in the film like a drowned ant and is very enticing to a fish looking for an easy meal. If you see ants on your way to the river, it's a sure bet the fish are looking for them as well.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18, 20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top water Terrestrial This is a great summer fly for trout all the way down to bluegill. When nothing else works, tie on an ant and fish will hammer it. Great shape and hackel for movement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for panfish I’m new to fly fishing so I’m starting out targeting panfish on ponds. This fly is an absolute panfish killer! I fish it as a dropper under a hopper and 8 out of 10 catches seem to come on the ant. The durability is incredible as well; I’ve caught over a dozen panfish (and one small bass) on a single fly and it still looks brand new. Must have in your fly box, can’t wait to try it on trout!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fish love this fly I bought 2 wish I bought more. Panfish hamme this fly. Only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is, the fly works so well panfish hammer it and the fly falls apart after 5 fish or so.I wish it was more durable ut wow! Do fish love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent These ants are excellently crafted. They pass the eye test easily and I can't wait to try them out tomorrow. I'm certain they will catch fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ant pattern I was very excited when I saw this pattern on the Orvis website. I have used many other ant patterns in the past (foam and thread) and after a few catches, the fly gets destroyed by trout teeth. This fly should sit low in the water and last quite a long time. Looking forward to going out to my local mountain stream and catching some wild rainbows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Terrestrial Always loved these hard body terrestrials.......think they are better than the tied-body ants.
