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.

Featured in this YouTube fly tying tutorial are the D102BL hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; you can find those hooks and many others at the following link:
