Foam Ant

This simple foam any pattern is a great little fly to have for late summer and into the fall fly fishing season. I tie this pattern in black and a brown/red version using ginger or furnace hackle. The fly floats wonderfully on the surface and when it does get a little waterlogged, it sits comfortably in the surface film.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
