CDC Flying Ant

Fishing ants in the summertime is a favorite of mine when fly fishing, and this pattern is rising rapidly in my arsenal. Featured in Henry Ramsay's book, "Matching Major Eastern Hatches," the CDC Flying Ant is a pattern that is simple to tie, suggestive of the natural, and effective to fish. The color can be varied (as many also fish this in a light brown shade), as can the size, yet the basics here are solid. Feel free to share how you fish ant patterns in the comments section below.
